Before becoming a leading expert on cyber crime, J. Keith Mularski sold discount furniture.

Now he’s a supervisory special agent for the FBI, heading the Pittsburgh field office’s cyber squad, the Associated Press reports.

After graduating from college, Mularski spent about five years selling furniture before joining the FBI.

“I was in private industry beforehand. But I’ve kind of always liked computers,” Mularski said during a recent interview.

Mularski’s status has risen because of some recent cases, including one in which five Chinese Army intelligence officers were charged with stealing trade secrets from U.S. steel companies.

“Keith Mularski is not without technical ability, but his real talent lies in convincing experienced cybercriminals that he is one of them and not a law enforcement officer,” said Misha Glenny, a British journalist who specializes in cybercrime.

FBI Agent William Evanina, who helped investigate the anthrax attacks in 2001 and the hijacking of United Airlines Flight 93 on Sept. 11, 2001, is moving to a new job, Citizens Voice reports.

Evanina has been appointed director of the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive, giving him a important role in the country’s security.

“The office of the national counterintelligence executive leads the entire US government in protecting America from counterintelligence threats,” Evanina said.

Evanina, a Pennsylvania native, worked 25 years in the U.S. government and 18 years for the FBI. He worked on organized crime and was a trained sniper.

“Working on violent crimes is beyond dangerous,” he said. “It showed me how violent and dangerous a country and a city could be but that there (are) a good people out there.”

Jackson FBI’s First Black Special Agent in Charge Daniel McMullen Plans Retirement Just Short of Office’s 50th Anniversary

Daniel McMullen, the first black special agent in charge of Jackson’s FBI office, has announced his retirement.

“As a person with an interest in history itself and the history of the civil rights movement and an understanding of where Mississippi was in the history of civil rights, I find it very interesting now that I am where I am,” he said recently, according to the Clarion-Ledger.

The Jackson field office, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in July, was reestablished following the deaths of civil rights workers James Earl Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner.

“From being a student of history, reading about these historical figures, and then to meet them,” McMullen said. “Charles and Myrlie Evers, Gov. William Winter, James Meredith. Some of the Freedom Riders I’ve met — there are so many folks that lived it, and to hear what the world was like back then, and the multiple narratives about the role of the FBI. Where you stand on the issues definitely depends on where you sit.”

But McMullen, who also worked in New York, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, went far beyond civil rights issues. One case involved the kidnapping of Alexandria and Kyliyah Bain in 2012 and tracking down the man responsible – Adam Mayes.

“He was one of our top 10 fugitives,” McMullen said. “That provided a tremendous example of how law enforcement can cooperate in response to a critical incident.”

Correction: In an earlier version, Daniel McMullen’s name was spelled incorrectly.

In November 2002, he went to the Milwaukee Field Office where he was a supervisor and oversaw the counterintelligence squad and several national security investigations.

In 2005, it was back to headquarters where he was promoted to unit chief in the Counterintelligence Division.

In July 2007, he became a special agent in charge of the counterintelligence branch in the San Francisco office.

New DEA Head of Houston Division Brings Plethora of Border Experience

Joseph Arabit, the new head of the Houston Division of the DEA, arrives with a plethora of border experience that authorities hope will help crack down on drug cartel activity between the Texas-Mexico border, KHOU.com reports.

Arabit previously was in charge of the DEA office in El Paso at a time of intense activity from rival drug cartels crossing the border into the U.S.

“The murder rate in Juarez started to climb in 2008,” said Arabit recalling his first few months as special-agent-in-charge in El Paso.

Despite the violence across the border of El Paso, the U.S. city remained relatively safe because of Arabit’s actions to work with local, state and other federal agencies to clamp down.

“Once we had those individuals identified we did all that we could to link them to a U.S. crime they had committed in the past and then took it a step further,” Arabit said.
