Cory B. Nelson, Special Agent in Charge of Chicago’s FBI Office, is leaving his post after just seven month to take a job in the private sector, the Chicago Sun Times reports.

The 51-year-old notified the bureau Wednesday that he was leaving for a job with insurance and banking firm USAA in San Antonio, according to the Sun Times.

Nelson, who held a low public profile, had replaced Rob Grant for the top FBI job in Chicago.

What’s unclear is why he left. Some are speculating that he left because of sequesters or the inevitable turnover to happen when a new FBI director takes over, according to the Sun Times.

A San Antonio Police officer faces federal charges after his own department arrested him on accusations of planting false evidence and demanding cash from a crime victim, KHOU.com reports.

When Lundy arrived, he demanded money and searched Jusab’s car, where he planted pot and threatened to arrest the man, police allege, according to KHOU.com.

“He kept telling me also, ‘You want your license? You know, you want your record to be clean? It’s only $400,’ and he wanted $400 on the spot. And I didn’t have the money on me.” Jusab told KHOU.com.

Federal agents have been conducting raids in U.S. cities and targeting Mexican cartel members in response to last week’s murder of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Jaime Zapata in Mexico, the Associated Press reported. Another ICE agent Victor Avila Jr. was shot and wounded.

“We are taking a stand and we are sending a message back to the cartels that we will not tolerate the murder of a U.S. agent, or any U.S. official,” Carl Pike, assistant special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s special operations division said, according to AP.

The roundup, which began Wednesday and is expected to go through Friday, has targeted cities including Atlanta, St. Louis, Denver, Detroit, San Antonio, San Diego, Chicago and New Jersey, AP reported.

AP reported agents seized more than $4.5 million in cash and nearly 20 guns, arrested more than 100 people and confiscated about 23 pounds of methamphetamine, 107 kilos of cocaine, 5 pounds of heroin and 300 pounds of marijuana at more than 150 different locations.

WASHINGTON — Frank Montoya, Jr., the section chief for the Counterintelligence Division at FBI headquarters, who worked on the Oklahoma bombing and Robert Hanssen spy case, has been named head of the bureau’s Honolulu Division.

Montoya joined the FBI in 1991 and was first stationed in the San Antonio Field Office, where he worked violent crime and fugitive investigations. He also worked temporarily in the Oklahoma office to help in the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing investigation.

In June 1996, he transferred to the San Juan Field Office and worked in the special operations group and was a surveillance team leader on drug, violent crime, and national security cases, the FBI said.

He then went off to the Washington Field Office’s national security squad, and in April 2000, he went to headquarters where he oversaw national security investigations and operations. During that time, he assisted with the Robert Hanssen investigation.

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.

One of the founders of the violent Juárez drug cartel in Mexico, who had been wanted in the U.S. since 1985, was extradited to San Antonio on Friday, the El Paso Times reported.

Juan Jose Quintero Payán aka Don Juan-Jo, was extradited after a long drawn out ordeal that stretched over many years. Mexico claimed Quintero Payan, now 68, was responsible for major drug trafficking in the U.S. from 1978 to 2002, the Texas paper reported.

Mexican authorities arrested him in 1992, but let him go for lack of evidence, the El Paso Times reported. Seven years later, he was caught again and convicted.

Mexico initially rejected any extradition to the U.S., but later changed its mind. Quintero Payan had been jailed in a maximum-security prison in Mexico.
