GRANITE FALLS, Wash. - If it was the notorious teen burglar, he got away again.

Dozens of police combed thick forest near the small town of Granite Falls on Sunday night and Monday, after a shot was fired near deputies responding to a break-in, but they called the search off Monday afternoon without finding their suspect.

Due to the fact that the break-in was near where a stolen plane from Idaho crash-landed last week, detectives thought it might have been the work of 18-year-old Colton Harris-Moore, a prolific burglar from Camano Island who may have stolen three airplanes in the past year.
