Church officials on Long Island say the co-director of music at St. Agnes Cathedral in Rockville Centre has been removed from his position amid an FBI investigation into possible child exploitation charges.
Newsday reports the Diocese of Rockville Centre made the announcement on Friday.
The church says 55-year-old Michael Wustrow directed several youth choirs at the cathedral.
Church officials say they learned this week that the FBI executed a search warrant and seized Wustrow’s work computer. He was immediately relieved of his duties.
Wustrow could not be reached for comment and the FBI did not respond to a request for comment.
The newspaper says he was in the process of leaving Long Island to take a music director position in the Diocese of Orlando, Fla.
