'Barefoot Bandit' Colton Harris-Moore Arrested in the Bahamas
Colton Harris-Moore, the 19-year-old fugitive known as the “Barefoot Bandit,” has nowhere else to run—or, for that matter, fly. After a two-year escape from U.S. justice, Harris-Moore was arrested on Eleuthera, an island in the Bahamas, on Sunday. Harris-Moore’s flight from the law began after he escaped from a Washington state halfway house in 2008, and extensive media coverage followed. Since then, he's gained folk-hero fame for his ability to avoid officials, as well as steal cars, boats, and planes. Now in police custody, it doesn’t look like he’ll maintain that status much longer. A police official said the suspect would soon be flown to Nassau, where the Royal Bahamas Police Force would be holding a news conference.
