Barefoot Bandit Indicted By Grand Jury
SEATTLE (AP) - Colton Harris-Moore, the 19-year-old accused in a two-year string of thefts from Washington state to the Caribbean, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Seattle.
The U.S. Attorney's office says Harris-Moore was indicted on charges of interstate transportation of a stolen aircraft and being a fugitive in possession of a firearm, among other charges.
Harris-Moore has been nicknamed the "Barefoot Bandit" because police say he did not wear shoes during some of the thefts he is accused of committing.
After a two-year run from the law, Harris-Moore was caught July 10 in the Bahamas, a week after he allegedly crash-landed an airplane stolen from an Indiana airport. Bahamian authorities launched an extensive manhunt for the teenager and arrested him as he tried to flee in a boat.
