(Colton Harris-Moore, an 18-year-old suspect in dozens of break-ins
on Camano, Orcas and San Juan Islands as well as Point Robert.)


EVERETT, Wash. - Law enforcement experts say to catch a nimble fugitive like the "Barefoot Burglar" of Camano Island Colton Harris-Moore, police need dedicated teams that can move quickly across jurisdictional borders.
     
The outfit best suited to the task is the FBI, but the agency doesn't consider the 18-year-old a grave threat.
     
FBI Special Agent Fred Gutt told The Daily Herald of Everett that Harris-Moore is a local burglar and not a high priority.
     
Harris-Moore has been a fugitive from justice since he escaped from a halfway house in Renton in April 2008.
     
He's been investigated in Island, Snohomish, San Juan, Skagit, King and Whatcom counties, plus British Columbia and Idaho. He's suspected of stealing and crashing four small planes.

Colton Harris-Moore: notorious 'Barefoot Bandit" may have resurfaced

(February 11, 2010)

A stolen airplane found in the San Juan Islands and chalk-outline feet drawn all over a burgled grocery store suggest that Washington's infamous teenage 'barefoot bandit' is back at it.
     
Sherri Pierson, a bookkeeper at Homegrown Market on Orcas Island, tells The Associated Press that someone broke into the store Wednesday night, and its owner arrived Thursday to find 3-foot-long chalk outline feet drawn all over the floor.
     
San Juan County sheriff's officials are also investigating a plane from Skagit County that was found at the airport on Orcas, a suspected modus-operandi of Colton Harris-Moore, who's wanted in scores of break-ins since he escaped from a halfway house in April 2008.
     
Pierson said some cash was taken from the market, a dessert tray of stuffed croissants was cleared out, and a security system monitor was left under running water in a sink.

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.
