BOSTON (AP) – A federal grand jury appears to be investigating the 16 years former Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger and his girlfriend spent on the run.

Joshua Bond, property manager at the apartment complex in Santa Monica, Calif., where Bulger and Catherine Greig stayed for most of their years on the run, said Tuesday he has been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury in Boston. Bond said he didn’t know if other residents of the apartments also had been subpoenaed.

Bulger and Greig were apprehended in Santa Monica last month. Bulger is charged with participating in 19 murders. Greig is charged with harboring a fugitive. A federal prosecutor said in court last week she could potentially face additional charges, including conspiracy and identity theft.

The grand jury was first reported by The Boston Globe.
