PARKER - A Scoutmaster was arrested Tuesday by Parker Police after being accused of sexual exploitation of a child.

Brian David Robbins, 30, allegedly had more than 1,000 digital images and video of suspected child victims in his home in the 22000 block of Pensive Court in Parker.

During the course of the investigation, detectives with the Internet Crimes Against Children task force discovered he is a Scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 501 in the Parker area.

"We had enough probable cause to establish gathering a search warrant on this individual believed to be possessing and distributing child pornography," Officer Dawn Cashman with the Parker Police Department said. "We have one dedicated detective who is assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children."

According to an arrest affidavit, Robbins admitted to downloading images and video of child pornography. He told investigators he used a peer-to-peer sharing service to download the suspected child-porn material, the affidavit read.

"What concerns us is he was a Scoutmaster and he had access to children. Are there other victims out there? We don't know who the victims are on these images and DVDs. We are asking parents to talk to their children, and if they have any information they should call Parker Police," Cashman said.

There are 15 registered members in Robbins' troop, but Boy Scout officials say there is no indication that Scouts were the victims of any sexual contact with Robbins.

Boy Scout officials say that upon hearing the allegations, Robbins was removed from Scouting and was "permanently banned" from participating in the program.

The Boy Scouts said they perform criminal and other background checks on potential applicants to the program.

Robbins was arrested and taken to the Douglas County Detention Facility. He was booked on two counts of sexual exploitation of a child. He is being held on a $50,000 bond.

If you have additional information that may assist in this investigation please call Detective Brukbacher with the Parker Police Department at 303-805-6523 or email sbrukbacher@parkerononline.org.
