Treasurer has some of Whitey's money
BOSTON -- Fugitive mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger has $4,000 coming to him.
But if he wants it, he has to show up in person to claim it.
State Treasurer Tim Cahill's office says Bulger has about $4,000 in unclaimed property from an abandoned Florida bank account. The bank sent the money to the state when Bulger never claimed it.
Bulger, the reputed boss of the Winter Hill Gang, has been on the lam since 1995 when he fled just before his federal indictment. The former FBI informant is wanted in connection with 19 murders.
The FBI is offering a $1 million award for information leading to his arrest.
Treasury spokeswoman Alison Mitchell said the money has been on the list since 1998.
