The latest head of the Boston FBI hopes to accomplish what his predecessors did not: Catch fugitive mobster James “Whitey” Bulger and solve the famous 1990 Gardner Museum art heist.

Richard DesLauriers said he plans to use “laser like focus” to solve the cases that will be among the top local priorities, the Associated Press reported.

DesLauriers, a 23-year veteran, took over the Boston office last month as special agent in charge.

Bulger is wanted in 19 murders and has been on the lam since 1995. Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner museum heist in 1990, valued at more than $500 million, remains a big mystery.
