Officers are now looking for other men who attended the same group at the time.
The investigation comes after an indecent image of a child was put on social media in August, 2013.
Detectives then raided a house in Dukinfield, Tameside, and recovered electrical equipment which was forensically tested.
That led the officers to a 33-year-old man, who reported sexual abuse in 1996 while he was a Scout at 1st Bredbury and Woodley Scout group.
A man has since been arrested on suspicion of making/possession of indecent images and indecent assault and remains on police bail.

"As part of our investigation we have analysed various electrical items and arrested a man on a number of child sex offences but importantly we need trace individuals that attended the Scout group in the mid to late 90s.
