SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The FBI has announced a new special agent in charge of the agency's Salt Lake City division.

The FBI announced Monday that James McTighe will replace Timothy J. Fuhrman, who was recently named special agent in charge of the FBI's Mobile, Ala., division.

He comes to Utah after serving as special assistant for the deputy director at FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C.

McTighe started as an FBI special agent in 1983. He has worked in the Cincinnati, Miami, Denver and Cleveland FBI divisions and served as a pilot with the Special Operations Group.
