Multiple agencies from Colorado Springs to Hawaii are investigating the possibility that a Fort Carson soldier victimized a child or children within their jurisdiction.

Police tell 11 News that they were first alerted to 30-year-old Joe Alfred Garcia Jr.'s alleged crimes in early October after Homeland Security Investigations in Boston called and asked for help with help in a child porn investigation.

Garcia was then arrested and charged with 12 counts of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust/pattern of abuse.

The Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID) and Hawaiian authorities are among the other agencies investigating Garcia. Garcia has been stationed in many different cities and states during his military career, and there are fears he may have several victims.

11 News has confirmed one of Garcia's alleged victims is a little girl. Police say there may be at least three others, and possibly even more.

If you have any information about this case, call Springs police at 444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
