BOSTON (AP) — The chief federal prosecutor in Boston says the arrest of James “Whitey” Bulger marks the moment when the former mob boss will finally face justice.

U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz says the arrests of Bulger and longtime girlfriend Catherine Greig mark the end of a long exhaustive hunt.

The FBI finally caught the 81-year-old Bulger at an apartment in Santa Monica, Calif.

The arrests come just days after the government launched a publicity campaign to locate the fugitive crime boss by circulating pictures of Greig on daytime TV and on billboards.

Bulger had been on the run for 16 years.
