    Alleged Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger has been arrested in Los Angeles after 16 years on the run, the FBI has reported.

    According to the agency, Irish-American Bulger (81) was seized with long-time girlfriend Catherine Greig (60) in Santa Monica, California, yesterday.

    Both are due to appear in court later today.

    Bulger was on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list, and he is accused of involvement in 19 murders.

    It is claimed he ran the Winter Hill gang - an Irish-American mob that operated loan-sharking, gambling and drug rackets in the Boston area - during the 1970s and 1980s.

    FBI Agents have arrested Top Ten Fugitive, James J. "Whitey" Bulger, and his companion, Catherine Greig, in California.

    Recent publicity produced a tip which led agents to Santa Monica, California, where they located both Bulger and Greig at a residence early this evening.

    Bulger and Greig were arrested without incident. Both are currently scheduled for an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in the Central District of California (downtown Los Angeles) on Thursday.
