SCOTTS VALLEY (KRON) — A former Scotts Valley city employee was arrested last week in Scotts Valley for allegedly requesting and receiving nude pictures from an underage girl, according to police.

Trevor Arriola, 23, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of possession of child pornography and sexual exploitation of a child, according to police.

After obtaining a search warrant, officers discovered Arriola had befriended the victim, a 15-year-old girl, two years ago. The pair lost contact but recently reconnected through social media, police said.

Police say Arriola not only requested and received nude photos of the teen, but he also allegedly shared the pictures with a third party.

Officers determined Arriola and the victim did not have any physical contact, police said.

Arriola began working as an aide to the City of Scotts Valley Park and Recreation Summer and Afterschool Program in 2014. Upon his hiring, Arriola went through a fingerprint and background check, which returned no results, according to police.

Arriola, however, resigned from the position in August, months before his arrest.

In order to address questions and concerns, the police and the city’s Park and Recreation Division will hold a meeting for parents Wednesday, starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Scotts Valley Water District at 2 Civic Center Drive.
