Barefoot Bandit:BEIJING, July 12 (Xinhuanet) – “Pies Descalzos” bandit Colton Harris-Moore, a notorious runaway teenager who has been a fugitive for nearly two years, was arrested in the Bahamas, according to media reports Monday.
The teenager, 19, was captured after a brief chase boat near Harbour Island, which ended when police shot the boat engine Harris-Moore.
A police source told the wire service Bahamas NewsCore: “He was caught in a place called Harbour Island, part of Eleuthera. He was in his boat, which we believe was the same one that was stolen last week.
Island police have been searching for him since he allegedly crashed a stolen plane a week ago on the nearby island of Great Abaco.
Harris-Moore is suspected of stealing cars, boats and at least five aircraft – including the plane that allegedly stole in Indiana and traveled to the islands off the coast of Florida, despite the lack of formal flight training.
He has been a fugitive since 2008, when he escaped from a halfway house for children in Renton, Washington, after pleading guilty to three counts of robbery and sentenced to three years.
He was called the “nkd bandit” because he was without shoes when he allegedly broke into houses.
