ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. (AP) - Catholic 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 (https://nwsdy.li/2y66RgN ) 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, Florida.
