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


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.
