Seward Police Patch

According to a press release from the Seward Police Department, Douglas Maliski, age 59, of Seward was arrested on Monday and charged with one count of distribution of child pornography and four counts of possession of child pornography.

The arrest came following a tip from the Anchorage Police Department in March that led to a search warrant for Maliski’s residence where his laptop, cell phone, and hard drives were seized.

According to court documents, the distribution charge and one possession charge come from late 2020 and the other possession charges come from early 2019. Police say no local victims were identified.

Maliski was released on a $5,000 bond.
