“Whitey” Bulger Quite the Traveler on the Lam

Did the FBI just get lazy with this guy?

BOSTON—Alleged mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger told authorities transporting him back to Boston after his arrest that he had been a whirlwind traveler as a fugitive, visiting Las Vegas numerous times to play the slots, dashing over to Mexico to buy medicine, and even traveling in disguise to Boston while “armed to the teeth” to “take care of some unfinished business,” according to a new federal court filing.

In the filing, prosecutors argued that the 81-year-old Mr. Bulger, arrested in Santa Monica, Calif., last week after 16 years on the lam, may have access to enough money to pay for his own lawyer.

Carmen Ortiz, the U.S. attorney in Boston said Mr. Bulger had financed a “relatively comfortable lifestyle” for himself and his girlfriend, Catherine Greig, frequently traveling to Vegas to gamble and winning more than losing.
