WASHINGTON — The FBI on Tuesday named a new leader for its Baltimore office, selecting the agency’s personal representative in Afghanistan.
Stephen E. Vogt, who began his FBI career in Cleveland more than 20 years ago, was selected as the office’s special agent in charge.
He takes over for Richard McFeeley, who moved to FBI headquarters in July to be executive assistant director of the Criminal, Cyber, Response Services Branch.
Vogt had most recently served as legal attaché in Kabul, Afghanistan, overseeing FBI personnel and operations for the country. Before that, he was an assistant special agent in the Washington field office, overseeing violent crime programs, organized crime and other initiatives. He also worked with the Baltimore police department to help create a task force to deal with criminal street gangs in Prince George’s County.
Vogt also served as an assistant legal attache at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, investigating kidnappings and other crimes.
He joined the FBI as a special agent in Cleveland in 1989 and investigated white-collar crime, organized crime and public corruption.
