Teen called ‘Barefoot Bandit’ in Seattle court


SEATTLE — The so-called “Barefoot Bandit” faces an appearance in federal court in Seattle, four months after an alleged cross-country crime spree ended with his arrest in a stolen boat in the Bahamas.

Nineteen-year-old Colton Harris-Moore is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday on charges that include interstate transportation of stolen aircraft and being a fugitive in possession of a firearm.

The charges stem from a crime spree that began after Harris-Moore walked away from a halfway house south of Seattle in 2008. He is believed to have hopscotched his way around the Northwest — and then across the country — in stolen planes, boats and cars, breaking into grocery stores, homes and ATMs along the way.

Four of the counts carry maximum sentences of 10 years in prison.
