Collection of weapons shown in Bulger case

Jurors in James "Whitey" Bulger racketeering trial have been shown a massive collection of weapons, including machine guns, allegedly owned by Bulger and his gang.

Retired state police Col. Tom Foley identified weapons found in several locations during investigations in 1990 and 2000, including in a shed behind a home owned by the mother of Bulger's partner.

Foley identified most of the weapons through photographs. But a prosecutor handed Foley seven machine guns, one by one, and asked him to identify them for the jury.

Another retired state police officer also testified Thursday, identifying Bulger in 1980 video surveillance meeting with members of his Winter Hill Gang and members of the rival Italian Mafia.

Bulger is accused of a long list of crimes, including participating in 19 killings.
