Cheerleader Jerry Harris is being investigated by the FBI after he allegedly solicited sex and sexually explicit photos from minors.
Agents with the FBI executed a search warrant at his home in Naperville, Illinois, on Monday afternoon as part of the investigation, sources told USA Today.
A spokesperson with the bureau confirmed law enforcement were conducting court-authorized activity in the area, but declined to elaborate further.
Harris, 21, who achieved fame after Netflix’s docuseries Cheer, has not yet been criminally charged. He has since deactivated his Instagram account and has issued no public comment since news of the investigation was made public.
The criminal probe is based on allegations that were reported to police separately by Varisty, the global authority of competitive cheerleading.
