Ammo seized at Bulger apartment

FBI agents have hauled ammunition and bags labeled as containing weapons out of the Santa Monica, Calif., apartment building where Boston mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger was captured after 16 years on the run.

One clear plastic bag removed Thursday morning contained boxes of .357 Magnum bullets, and another bag was labeled miscellaneous firearms and accessories.

Numerous other pieces of evidence in paper bags were also carried out and placed in a law enforcement truck.

Agents arrested the 81-year-old Bulger and longtime girlfriend Catherine Greig late Wednesday after receiving a tip and setting up surveillance.

Bulger had a $2 million reward on his head and rose to No. 1 on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list after Osama bin Laden was killed.
