A former CNN worker who served as a senior producer on Jake Tapper’s “The Lead” is being investigated in connection with allegations pertaining to potential minor victims, Fox News reported, citing the Fairfax County (Va.) Police Department.

The department told the outlet that a probe has been initiated “into serious allegations involving potential juvenile victims” and “detectives assigned to the Child Exploitation Squad of the Major Crimes Bureau are leading this investigation” related to Rick Saleeby.

“While we will eventually be transparent about our findings, safeguarding the personal privacy and safety of victims and witnesses as well as maintaining the integrity of our criminal investigation are of paramount importance,” a Fairfax County Police spokesperson noted via a statement, according to Fox News.

A CNN spokesperson informed Fox News Digital that the individual “in question no longer works for CNN,” but resigned earlier in December.

Another former CNN producer, John Griffin, was recently fired by the outlet after being arrested.

Griffin was arrested earlier this month by the FBI “after a federal grand jury in Vermont charged Griffin with three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Vermont.

“The charges against Mr. Griffin are deeply disturbing. We learned of his arrest Friday afternoon and terminated his employment Monday,” a CNN spokesperson informed Fox News earlier in December.
