Trackers Bay counselor charged with possession of child pornography



A Trackers Earth: Bay Area staff member was arrested on June 30 for possession of child pornography by the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office.

The camp counselor, a 36-year-old man named Tyler Robles, had been investigated by the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office and Homeland Security Investigations officers, according to a Facebook post from the Office of the Sonoma County Sheriff. After receiving an arrest warrant and a search warrant for Robles and his home, investigators searched the man’s home in Richmond.

“During the research, they learned that Robles is currently a camp counselor employed by Trackers Bay in Berkeley,” one read on Facebook. “They also found out that he supervised and had access to young campers in Sonoma County.”

Robles was eventually arrested at a Trackers Bay camp located in Sevastopol. He was then taken to Contra County Jail and charged with possession of child pornography.

According to Trackers Bay spokesman David Perry, Robles was immediately put on administrative leave. The camp counselor resigned shortly after.

On July 1, Trackers Bay contacted all Bay Area families who had participated in the organization’s programs in the past 12 months, Perry added.

“There is no indication at this time that a student or a Trackers program, past or present, is involved in any way in this matter, and Trackers continues to seek information from law enforcement,” Perry said in an email.
