PARKER, Colo. (CBS4) – A state leader with the Boy Scouts of America says his organization has no reason to believe a Scoutmaster who was arrested on child pornography charges this week committed any crimes against Boy Scouts.

Brian Robbins, 30, of Parker, tentatively faces two counts of sexual exploitation of a child. Police executed a search warrant at his home near the 22000 block of Pensive Court on Tuesday and said they found evidence that included digital images of unknown child victims.

John Cabeza, spokesman for the Denver Area Council of Boy Scouts, told CBS4 Robbins was immediately banned from the scouts for life once they learned about the charges.

“Scouting is here to provide a safe haven for young people,” Cabeza told CBS4. “This individual and what he did is totally against everything scouting stands for.”

Cabeeza says Robbins’ troop has 15 members and 16 adult volunteers. He says that — like it is with all of their troops — a single adult is never alone with a single child.

“Can you assure us the kids are safe in this troop?” CBS4’s Tom Mustin asked Cabeza.

“Yes I can. They’re very safe,” he said.

Parker police said they agree with Cabeza’s statement, at least for now.

“Right now we don’t have any reason to believe anyone has been touched or sexually assaulted, all we have are images of unknown victims,” Parker police spokeswoman Dawn Cashman said.

Neighbor Nancy Schumaker says Robbins lived in his parents’ home with his wife. She said she often saw young men enter the home.

“They are a Mormon family. I’ve seen a lot of people come and go and never seen anything that would make me feel uncomfortable,” she said.

All sides agree that whatever happened, justice needs to be served.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the children and any families impacted by this,” Cabeza said.

Detectives are now working to identify the child victims in the case. They said it’s unclear how many victims they are dealing with at this time.

Police want parents whose children have had exposure to Robbins to talk to their children.

Robbins is currently being held on a $50,000 bond.

Cabeza said the Boy Scouts of America does extensive background checks on all applicants.
