On March 23rd, 2017 law enforcement officers arrested 36-year-old Gary Burbank of Discovery Bay for multiple counts of child molestation. Three female victims between the ages of 14 and 16 have been identified.
This follows an investigation led by detectives from the Sexual Assault Unit of the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff. A female victim contacted authorities who identified the suspect.
