Chipotle CEO Monty Moran sent a memo to employees to announce that Mark Crumpacker has been put on administrative leave, Fast Company reports.

“As you may have heard, Mark Crumpacker is apparently under investigation for one or more misdemeanor offenses, and he has been placed on administrative leave from Chipotle while this matter is being investigated,” the memo says.

“We believe that it is important for all of us at Chipotle to remain focused on our business without unnecessary distraction, and to allow Mark to focus on these personal matters.

Crumpacker, chief marketing and development officer for Chipotle, was recently indicted as a customer of a cocaine trafficking ring in New York City.
