I woke up this morning to see that one of the FBI’s ten most wanted fugitives was arrested within the last 24hrs. I never personally followed this case but any time we see somebody come off the 10 most wanted list its a pretty cool day. I still really like when you walk into the post office and see these pictures up on the wall. Even in today’s world of everything cutting edge technology the idea that a snapshot in a public place still works. I also think its pretty cool that both when the military caught Bin Laden and with the capture of Bulger they were found by finding there girl friends. Not to fugitives on the run, shut up during the pillow talk.
The FBI finally caught the 82-year-old Bulger at a residence in Santa Monica along with his longtime girlfriend Catherine Greig on Wednesday, just days after the government launched a publicity campaign to locate the fugitive mobster.
“Recent publicity produced a tip which led agents to Santa Monica where they spotted both Bulger and Greig at a residence,” FBI Special Agent Greg Comcowich said in a statement Thursday.
