BOSTON (AP) - A retired state police lieutenant has returned to the witness stand for a second day in the racketeering trial of reputed Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger.
    
Lt. Robert Long on Thursday identified Bulger in video surveillance conducted by state police in 1980.
    
In the videos, Bulger is seen meeting with members of the Winter Hill Gang and members of the rival Italian Mafia.
    
On Wednesday, Long described a series of photographs and video taken of Bulger in 1980 at an auto repair garage in Boston's North End. Prosecutors say he used the garage as a meeting place.
    
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.
