ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Neil MacBride, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, is leaving his post after four years of overseeing numerous high-profile cases.
MacBride said Thursday his resignation is effective Sept. 13. He was appointed to the post in 2009.
Under MacBride, the Alexandria-based office pursued terrorism, corruption, human trafficking and white-collar prosecutions, and increased its emphasis on cases with international connections, including drug trafficking, arms dealing, and piracy.
