BOSTON – Former Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger could soon see some of his jewelry, clothes and other belongings on the auction block.

The U.S. Marshals Service will auction off many of the items seized from Bulger’s California apartment after his arrest two years ago, the Boston Globe reported Saturday. Authorities say the profits will be split among the families of those who were killed by Bulger.

The 84-year-old Bulger was sentenced Nov. 14 to life in prison. He was found guilty in August by a federal jury in 11 of the 19 killings he was accused of, along with dozens of other gangland crimes, including shakedowns and money laundering.
