The FBI has named Baltimore native Stephen E. Vogt as special agent in charge for its office in the city.

Vogt started work in his new position last week, FBI spokesman Rich Wolf said.

Richard A. McFeely, who previously headed the Baltimore office, left recently after just under three years to become the FBI's assistant director of criminal and cyber operations.

Before coming to Baltimore, Vogt was the legal attache in Afghanistan — the personal representative of the FBI director — and also served in Iraq. Between those stints abroad, Vogt worked on fighting gang and violent crime in Washington, D.C. and teamed up with the Baltimore office for a project tackling gangs in Prince George's County.

Vogt started his career with the FBI in 1989 and in 1999 was put in charge of a special drug task force in Cleveland. He has a law degree from the University of Baltimore.
