FBI seeks leads in child porn case at Fort Irwin

June 24, 2010 |  5:39 pm
Federal authorities on Thursday were looking for  victims who may have been molested by a former Fort Irwin Army soldier charged with possessing child pornography and illegal sexual contact with children.

Szymanski Joseph Scott Szymanski, 23, was arrested in June in Fairbanks, Alaska, after he was charged in federal court in Riverside County with possessing pornographic images of several children whom he babysat or had contact with while living in Fort Irwin, the FBI said Thursday.

A digital memory card has been found at the fort that shows photos of naked underage boys, and boys engaged in sexual acts, according to the FBI. Agents allegedly tied Szymanski to the photos through furniture and other items in the images.

Szymanski, who left the Army and was living in Fairbanks, was a member of Scouting and religious organizations that would have provided access to children, the bureau said.

Anyone with information is asked to call FBI Agent Jeffrey Stiff at (951) 248-6582.
