Parker Boy Scout leader arrested for sexual exploitation of a child
PARKER, Colo. — “It’s definitely disturbing,” said Gary Mallory, who lives just two doors down from Brian David Robbins, the Parker man charged with collecting child pornography. “I don’t know what to think.”
Robbins was arrested Tuesday, after Parker Police served a warrant at his house and removed “numerous” pieces of evidence against the 30-year-old, who has been identified as a Scout Master for a Boy Scouts of America troop based in Parker.
“This is why I’m in law enforcement, to catch predators like this,” said Officer Dawn Cashman, of the Parker Police Department.

Officer Cashman says there is no indication that Robbins made the pornography or that any Boy Scouts were victims, though she says investigators are still searching through his data and may add more charges against him depending on what they find.
In a statement, Joe Farrell, a spokesman for the Denver Council of the Boy Scouts of America told us that Robbins had been a Scout Master for several years, but was banned once the group received word of the allegations against him.
“Abuse of anyone especially a child is intolerable, and our thoughts and prayers go out to those who may be a victim of this type of reprehensible behavior,” Farrell said over the phone. “The behavior included in these allegations run counter to everything for which the Boy Scouts of America stands.”
Farrell refused to identify the specific troop to which Robbins belonged, but says the Denver Council has reached out to parents of those scouts to let them know about the incident.
As of 10 p.m. Wednesday, Brian Robbins remains in Douglas County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.
