Herbert Brown, section chief of the FBI’s gang and drug section at headquarters, will take over the Sacramento FBI office in January, the Sacramento Bee reported.
Brown, 53, a former fullback with the UC Davis football team in the 1970s, replaces Drew Parenti, who retired in October. He’ll supervise 160 agents, the paper reported.
The paper reported that Brown was promoted to section chief of the FBI’s Gang Criminal Enterprise Section in 2008.
The FBI on Friday confirmed the appointment.
