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 re­ported that the Diocese of Rockville Cen­tre made the an­nounce­ment on Fri­day.

The church said 55-yearold 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 said he was in the process of leav­ing Long Island to take a mu­sic di­rec­tor po­si­tion in the Diocese of Or­lando, Florida.
