Head of FBI office for Md., Delaware to move to Houston

April 08, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The head of Maryland's FBI office will be leaving in three months to become the chief agent in charge of the agency in Houston, a decision he made partly because he wants to move closer to relatives.

Richard M. Mosquera, 48, has been with the Maryland-Delaware field office for less than a year. His successor has not been named.

Mosquera said yesterday he regrets leaving Baltimore but is doing so because of personal and professional reasons.

"I've coveted this position," said the 22-year FBI veteran. "But this move gives me a chance to satisfy personal demands and the needs of the bureau at the same time."

Mosquera began his law-enforcement career in Baltimore as a city police officer in 1974. At one point he served as a bodyguard for then-Mayor William Donald Schaefer.
