Witnesses in Bulger racketeering trial to describe police surveillance video, photos

Jurors at the racketeering trial of James "Whitey" Bulger can expect to see more surveillance video of Bulger meeting with organized crime figures.

Testimony in Bulger's trial began Wednesday with a retired state police lieutenant on the witness stand describing a series of photographs and video taken of Bulger in 1980 at an auto repair garage in Boston's North End.

Prosecutors say Bulger used the garage as a meeting place.

Lt. Robert Long is expected to continue his testimony Thursday. Retired state police Col. Tom Foley, who investigated Bulger for decades, also is expected to take the stand.

The now 83-year-old Bulger was one of the nation's most wanted fugitives after he left Boston in 1994. He was captured in 2011 in Santa Monica, Calif.
