Alaska State Troopers says a Palmer man accused of possessing and distributing child pornography has been found and arrested in Lauderhill, Florida.

Troopers charged 30-year-old Treyvon Johnson with 10 counts each of distribution of child pornography and possession of child pornography, as well as a single count of evidence tampering. They were granted a warrant for his arrest, along with an extraditable arrest warrant from the Palmer District Attorney’s office. On Monday, the Broward County Sheriff’s office found Johnson in a Lauderhill home and arrested him, according to an online trooper dispatch.

“Plans are underway for his extradition back to Alaska,” troopers wrote.

The investigation into Johnson’s alleged crimes began on Jan. 22, according to an online trooper dispatch.

“I can confirm that Treyvon Johnson is a custodian for the Mat-Su Borough School District, currently at Colony High School. He is not on active working status,” Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District spokesperson Catherine Esary wrote in an email Monday.

She said Johnson has been employed for about a year-and-a-half. She also said the school district is working with troopers as the investigation continues, but has not been told whether any students were involved in the crime.

The warrant against Johnson set a bail of $50,000 with a third-party custodian requirement.

“If members of the community have any information that is helpful to the Troopers, they should contact the AST,” wrote Esary.
