TUCSON (AP) - The chief of the Border Patrol's Tucson Sector has retired 10 months after taking the post.
Agency spokesman Mario Escalante says Randy Hill retired last week. Escalante says Richard Barlow is serving as the acting Tucson Sector Chief.
No other information was available Friday about the timeline for naming a full time chief.
Hill is the second consecutive sector chief to serve less than one year.
Hill replaced Victor Manjarrez Jr., who left the post in December 2010 after nine months due to personal reasons.
Agents knew that Hill would serve a short stint based on the fact that he had already reached the Border Patrol's mandatory retirement age of 57.
