Overview

On Tuesday, June, 21, 2011, just after 8 p.m., PST, a tip was received by the FBI’s Los Angeles office. The tip was generated as a result of the FBI’s unique publicity campaign organized by Boston’s FBI office that began on Monday. As part of that campaign, the FBI paid for a Public Service Announcement to run in 14 media markets across the country including San Francisco and San Diego. Those places were chosen because the FBI knew that Bulger and Greig had ties to those areas.

Although Los Angeles was not one of the markets in which the PSA ran, news coverage of the campaign aired in Los Angeles, on national news and cable outlets, and the publicity saturated the Internet.

Los Angeles FBI agents immediately relayed the tip to the FBI’s command post in Boston. The command post had been set up to quickly and methodically analyze tips, and direct leads to FBI personnel around the country and world that were expected to be generated by the PSA.

FBI agents, analysts and other staff in Boston reviewed the tip. They recognized that certain information appeared to be credible and promising. By Wednesday at 10:50 a.m., PST, at the direction of FBI Boston, members of FBI Los Angeles’ fugitive task force were requested to conduct surveillance at the pertinent location. That task force included FBI agents and members of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Just after 4 p.m., PST, the task force members began conducting surveillance at the location. The task force concluded that the tip was fruitful after observing two individuals who appeared to resemble the fugitives.

At approximately 5:45 p.m., PST, using a ruse due to safety concerns, agents and other task force members lured Mr. Bulger out of his apartment. Agents determined that the individual was, in fact, Mr. Bulger. He was placed under arrest without incident.
