Posted: Sunday, January 12, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- An Anchorage man was charged with possession of child pornography Thursday after he was turned in by his foster child.

Randy Michael Chase, 37, was arrested at Ted Stevens International Airport late Thursday night.

Anchorage police said Chase is a foster parent with a private organization, Assets.

While Chase was away on business, his 17-year-old foster son discovered a tape containing what appeared to be sexual acts being committed against young children, police said.

The foster son called police and turned over the tape.

Chase has lived in Anchorage for nearly two years. Police are working with police in Arizona to attempt to identify the children in the tape.
