19-year-old Colton Harris-Moore, A.K.A. the Barefoot Bandit was finally arrested after a two year run from the law. Harris-Moore is a serial thief that was wanted for stealing multiple cars, planes, and even more extravagant things like airplanes. He was captured in the Bahamas after stealing a speed boat and a high speed chase ensued. He would have gotten away again, but this time the police shot out the engine, leaving the bandit nowhere to go.
Colton is wanted in several states for a two year crime spree during which he stole cars, speedboats, planes, and almost everything else he could get his hands on. He learned how to fly the planes on his own, but landing was something that would probably need formal training, seeing as he consistently crash landed the planes.
Colton Harris-Moore became known as the “Barefoot Bandit” last fall after the police found his footprints in an Idaho airport hangar where a plane was stolen from. That same plane was later found crash-landed 260 miles away.
Since he began his crime spree, the Barefoot Bandit has gained a lot of attention on social networking websites like Facebook and YouTube, with fans comparing him to a modern-day Billy the Kid and making videos and fan pages in his honor.
