Barefoot Bandit’s Reign of Theiving Ends After Bahamas Arrest

July 12, 2010

Bahamas (ChattahBox) – Colton Harris-Moore, also known as the Barefoot Bandit, has finally been caught, after an extensive boat chance in the Bahamas.

The Bandit has been high on the polices Wanted list for a great deal of robberies, all of which happened while he was barefoot. During the two years of his run, he stole five small planes, as well. Each one was crashed.

His last plane was how he is believed to have gotten to the Bahamas in the first place, and it was also crashed. Apparently, he just couldn’t work out how to land, no matter how hard he tried.

Now that he has been caught, he is facing a whole slew of charges, from robbery to possession of an illegal firearm. They are heavy charges for a guy still in his teens, and eight states are vying for his extradition.

In addition to this, the Bahamas is refusing to let him go into U.S. custody, apparently wanting to throw in a few charges of their own.

But Colton’s lawyer was quoted by KidGlue during an interview on the Today Show, and he knows what he is hoping for.

“I think if they want to hang onto him for a while, they probably could. But it would make a lot more sense to me for Colton’s best interests, and also for the government, I think, to try to consolidate all of these things and have him extradited to Seattle, where he’s charged in federal court in Seattle. When you’re in federal court, it’s a lot easier to consolidate things.”
