Bulger Cousin Broke Into Waltham Building Years Ago
The second cousin of alleged gangster James "Whitey" Bulger allegedly broke into a Waltham building in 2004.
As alleged gangster James "Whitey" Bulger was on the lam from racketerring and murder charges, his second cousin was allegedly honing his breaking and entering skills in Waltham.
Graham Bulger was arrested in 2004 after he allgedly broke into AT&T offices in Waltham and stole communications equipment, according to a 2004 Boston Herald story. Bulger faced the charges in January of 2004 in Waltham District Court.
The Secret Service arrested Bulger and an accomplice after an eight month investigation into who committed a series of thefts, according to the Herald. The Secret Service told the Herald the gear could have been used to turn local phone calls into long distance calls.
Authorities told the Herald the alleged crime was not connected to Whitey Bulger's criminal enterprise.
Graham Bulger's sister later claimed that Graham Bulger was not related to Whitey Bulger, according to the book The Brothers Bulger: How They Terrorized and Corrupted Boston for A Quarter Century.
