"Barefoot Bandit" facing hundreds of burglary charges
NEW YORK (WKOW) -- For two years he stayed a step ahead of the law - stealing cars, powerboats and even airplanes, police say, while building a reputation as a 21st-century folk hero.
But Colton Harris-Moore's celebrity became his downfall. Witnesses on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera recognized the 19-year-old dubbed the "Barefoot Bandit" and called police, who captured him Sunday after a high-speed boat chase.
The teen is headed to court later this week to be charged for up to hundreds of burglaries.
