(AP) - The federal Drug Enforcement Administration has announced its new special agent in charge of its Omaha Division that covers all of five Upper Plains states.

The agency named Justin King as the division head overseeing the division’s 11 offices, according to a news release sent Thursday.

King began his new duties on Monday, replacing Richard Salter Jr., who retired from the DEA in January. King’s territory includes Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, and a handful of counties in western parts of Wisconsin and Illinois.

King is a 19-year veteran of the agency and comes to the Omaha Division after serving three years as assistant special agent in charge of the Little Rock District Office.
