ANCHORAGE -

A man was arrested by the Anchorage Police Department for allegedly having videos depicting sexual exploitation of children as young as three years old.

Gregory Russell Edwards, 30, was the subject of a weeks-long undercover investigation by APD detective Mark Thomas that started April 11.

The detective received more than 30 illegal videos depicting children being exploited.
Computers and digital media were seized from his house on the 700 block of O Street in northwest Anchorage, and they are currently being examined by the Cyber Crimes forensic lab.

Edwards faces a count of distribution of child pornography and a count of possession of child pornography. Additional charges are anticipated as the investigation continues, according to police.

He was arrested May 8 and remanded to the Anchorage Correctional Complex, where he was held in lieu of $20,000 bail.

The investigation is ongoing, and police are concerned that there may be additional victims in the community. Anyone with information is asked to contact APD by calling 907-786-8500.
