Whitey Bulger's apartment could be a hot property
LOS ANGELES -- The simple Southern California apartment where James "Whitey" Bulger hid from the FBI for more than a decade could soon be one of the hotter properties in Santa Monica's rental market.
The door to unit 303 remains sealed with police tape as FBI agents continue to pick the place apart, but a line of prospective tenants is already jostling to get a look inside.
Property managers and rental agents say a flurry of people has been calling, several of whom mentioned Bulger during the course of their inquiry.
After Bulger's June 22 arrest, agents found about $800,000 in cash, more than 30 firearms, multiple knives and several pieces of false identification in the 1970s apartment a few blocks from the beach.
