SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - An alleged child predator described as one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most wanted fugitives has been arrested in Alaska after four years on the run.

Kevin Trask was listed as one of Homeland Security’s most wanted fugitives.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, says in a statement Friday that Trask was arrested in Fairbanks, Alaska. He was initially pulled over by officers for faulty equipment on his vehicle and gave a false identity.

The 40-year-old later admitted his real name and that he was wanted on child pornography charges.

Trask was indicted in Northern California in 2012 for possession and distribution of child pornography. An investigation found he was involved in sharing over 700 images and 10 videos of child exploitation, some of which involved sadomasochism and sex acts with toddlers.
