Man arrested for sexual abuse of a minor; distribution, production and possession of child pornography

By KTVA CBS 11 News 12:13 PM November 21, 2013

Police are asking anyone with information to call 786-8500

ANCHORAGE – Anchorage police arrested 44-year-old Kevin Dale Callander on a “no bail” plus court-approved third party arrest warrant Wednesday, authorities said.

The warrant consisted of five counts of distribution of child pornography, one second-degree count of sexual abuse of a minor, two counts of unlawful exploitation of a minor, two counts of indecent viewing or photography and three counts of possession of child pornography, according to a police release.

The investigation started this fall after an undercover detective and the Alaska Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received “illicit images depicting the sexual exploitation of children from Callander,” the release said.

On Oct. 29, the ICAC task force, including APD detectives, Alaska State Troopers and special agents from the United States Postal Service, searched Callander’s residence on Windsor Place in Anchorage. Computers and digital media were taken and examined by the APD Cyber Crimes Lab, which revealed videos depicting sexual exploitation of children as young as 3 or 4.

Police identified and contacted several children in the videos, but they suspect there may be more victims in Anchorage and Florida. The investigation is ongoing, and police are asking anyone with information to call 786-8500.

Editor’s Note: Based on information from APD, this article originally stated that Callander was 46 years old.
