Elusive Teenage 'Barefoot Bandit' Moving Eastward
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a suspected teenage burglar from Washington known for daring exploits to evade capture is moving eastward.
Police in Norfolk, Neb., have issued a warrant for 19-year-old Colton Harris-Moore following a June 19 break-in at a municipal airport office. Police say an SUV was stolen from the airport that day, then turned up nearly 240 miles away in Iowa.
Harris-Moore has been dubbed "The Barefoot Bandit" after allegedly committing crimes sans footwear.
The Camano Island, Wash., teen has evaded authorities since escaping from a halfway house in April 2008. He's believed to have stolen boats, cars, even several small airplanes that have been hot-wired and crash-landed.
Much to the chagrin of law enforcement, a Harris-Moore fan club boasts more than 42,000 followers on Facebook.
