F.C. Police Officer Arrested By FBI for Crimes Against Children

A City of Falls Church Police officer was arrested Wednesday by the FBI for internet crimes against children, City police reported today in a press release.

Robert MacSeain, 29, of Fairfax, is a seven-year employee with the F.C. police department and was arrested on Sept. 12 for 10 counts of internet crimes against children. According to an Associate Press report, Virginia State Police say MacSeain is facing 10 counts of distributing child pornography in Rockingham County. MacSeain was hired in 2011 as a dispatcher and was sworn in as an officer in January of 2017. He has been suspended pending an internal investigation by City police.

In a press release, City police say all MacSeain’s police authority, equipment, and access have been revoked and the department is cooperating with the FBI’s ongoing investigation.

A Twitter account appearing to belong to MacSeain states he works as a crisis intervention team officer with the Falls Church Police Department.
