Whitey, We’ve Got Your Money

The FBI continues to look really hard for James “Whitey” Bulger. From the shores of the Caribbean to the cafes of the South of France, no location is too scenic remote for investigators. Yet the fugitive remains elusive, showing up only on German television from time to time.

1215026023In a new maneuver to capture the mobster, the state has set a trap of sorts. State Treasurer Tim Cahill announced that Bulger has some unclaimed property he’s welcome to come pick up.

Bulger has about $4,000 from an account he never closed at a Florida bank.

It’s doubtful that Whitey will surface to claim his money, since Forbes says he’s worth between $30 and $50 million. And, you know, there’s a pretty big bounty on Bulger’s bald head.

But Whitey, if you’re reading this and feeling a little short on cash, the Abandoned Properties Division is open from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can even file your claim online.
