A tip from Microsoft Corporation has led to the arrest of a Palmer man, who faces multiple child pornography charges.


In August 2014, the Alaska Bureau of Investigation received a tip from Microsoft that one of its users had “attempted to email known images depicting child sexual abuse to another user,” according to an AST dispatch posted Wednesday.


Further investigation confirmed the identity of the suspect as 34-year-old Brandon Muston. After obtaining a search warrant, troopers say evidence seized from Muston’s residence Wednesday confirmed the allegations.


Troopers arrested Muston on four counts of possession of child pornography. He was transported to the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility. Bail was set at $15,000 plus a court-approved third-party custodian.
