Earlier this week Robert MacSeain was a fully empowered police officer with the City of Falls Church. Now, he wears a jump suit and is housed in the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center in Leesburg.

The FBI executed a search warrant at MacSeain's residence in Virginia. Following that search, Virginia State Police, as part of the Washington DC-NOVA Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, arrested the 29-year-old on Wednesday.

MacSeain faces 10 counts of distribution of child pornography.

City of Falls Church officials have since pulled MacSeain's equipment, revoked his authority and access and suspended him pending an internal investigation.

MacSeain started with the city as a dispatcher in 2011 and as a police officer in early 2017.
