The FBI agent credited with capturing notorious gangster James ‘Whitey’ Bulger provides new details about the June 2011 arrest, CBS reports.

CBS released a short clip previewing the interview with Scott Garriola that will be aired on 60 Minutes on Sunday.

When FBI agents raided Bulger’s apartment, they found a collection of 64-ounce bottles topped by stretched white sox.

“I said, ‘Hey Whitey, what are these? Are these some kind of Molotov cocktail you’re making?’ He goes, ‘No,’ he said, ‘I buy– tube socks from the 99 Cents Store and– they’re too tight on my calves and that’s the way I stretch ‘em out.’ I said, ‘Why you shopping at the 99 Cents Store? You have half a million dollars under your bed.’ He goes, ‘I had to make the money last.’”
