COLORADO SPRINGS - A Fort Carson soldier was arrested and charged with sex assault on a child in a child porn case that stretched across the country.
Joe Garcia Jr., 30, was taken into custody in Colorado Springs after police were tipped by Homeland Security in Boston.
Investigators in Boston found explicit photos of five young girls. A white sedan could be seen in one picture. From that photo, they tracked the location to Army barracks in Hawaii.
Police say once they contacted Garcia he reportedly admitted to assaulting a young girl and taking video and photos.
Back here in Colorado, Garcia had been with the Warrior Transition Battalion at Fort Carson and his record shows five years in the military including medals for service in Iraq.
Three additional victims have been identified and officials are getting concerned more could be out there, because Garcia has lived in many different cities.
If anyone has information about Garcia, they are asked to call Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers at 719-634-STOP. You can remain anonymous and could earn a reward.
