Timothy Slater, special agent in charge of the Criminal/Cyber Division at the Washington D.C. Field Office, has been appointed to take over the FBI’s Detroit Division, where he began his career with the bureau in 1999.

In March, Slater will take over the position previously held by David Gelios, who retired from the position last month.

Slater served in the Detroit Division’s Violent Crimes Task Force and has since held leadership positions in the Criminal Investigative Division, as the senior supervisory resident agent over four resident agencies in the Oklahoma City Division, in the Critical Incident Response Group, and in the Knoxville Division. Before heading up the Criminal/Cyber Division, Slater served as the deputy assistant director of the Critical Incident Response Group at Quantico, Va., which provides expertise in crisis management, negotiations, behavioral analysis, countering explosives, aviation, and tactical operations.

DETROIT —  David Gelios, the head of the Detroit FBI since late 2015, who oversaw a number of major investigations involving public corruption in Macomb County and Detroit, is retiring to take a job with the Roger Penske organization, Roop Raj of Fox 2 reports.

Gelios will reach the FBI’s mandatory retirement age of 57 in September. He will step down at the end of the month. A replacement has yet to be named.

“I’ll be a west region vice president of security situated out of San Diego, California,” Gelios tells Fox 2.

Gelios, an affable man who was not easily shaken, served as the chief inspector of the FBI’s Inspection Division before coming to Detroit. His duties included overseeing all FBI field office inspections, national program reviews and agent-involved shooting investigations.

He’s been with the FBI since 1995.

A native of Ohio and graduate of Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., he is a former high school teacher, college coach, and outreach officer for the University of California Office of the President.

Flint Airport Attacker Tried to Buy Gun in Suburban Detroit

DETROIT — Amor M. Ftouhi, 49, the Montreal man charged with stabbing an airport police officer in the neck at the Flint airport on Wednesday, was unsuccessful in an attempt to purchase a gun in the U.S., but did buy a knife here, the FBI says.


FBI’s David P. Gelios

David P. Gelios, head of the Detroit FBI, spoke Thursday about the weapons, but declined to give specifics at a downtown Detroit press conference. Fox 2’s M.L. Elrick reports the attacker tried to buy a gun at the Gilbraltar Trade Center in Mt. Clemens. WXYZ reports that he was turned away because of his citizenship.

Gelios said Ftouhi entered the U.S. legally by car at Lake Champlain, N.Y., on June 16 and was in Michigan last Sunday — two days later.

“I can’t say definitely he wasn’t here sooner, but we show activity in Michigan on June 18,” said Gelios, who conducted the press conference with acting U.S. Attorney Daniel Lemisch to talk about the attack on airport officer Lt. Jeff Neville, who is in stable condition.

He said that Ftouhi had not been flagged or monitored at any time by the FBI or Canadian authorities.

“We continue to have no information that suggests Ftouhi’s attack on Lt. Neville was part of a wider plot, nor do we have any indication he was aided in this incident or had any associates associated to this  incident.

Why Flint’s airport?

Gelios said the FBI is investigating that,and said he was looking for an international airport and he apparently picked the Bishop International Airport.

Ftouhi had no ticket to travel and had left his car parked at the Flint airport, where the FBI examined its contents.

Additional charges are likely, says Acting U.S. Attorney Lemisch. He gave no details, but suggested terrorism charges could come if the evidence points that way.

Ftouhi had yelled “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great” in Arabic) as he carried out the attack, federal authorities say.
