BEIJING, July 12 (Xinhuanet) -- "Barefoot bandit" Colton Harris-Moore, a notorious teenage fugitive who has been on the run for nearly two years, was arrested in the Bahamas, according to media reports Monday. The teen, 19, was captured after a brief boat chase near Harbour Island, which ended when police shot out the engine of Harris-Moore's boat. A Bahamas police source told wire service NewsCore: “He was caught off a place called Harbour Island, which is part of Eleuthera. He was in his boat, which we believe was the same one he stole last week. Island police have been searching for him since he allegedly crash-landed a stolen plane a week ago on nearby Great Abaco Island. Harris-Moore is suspected of stealing cars, boats and at least five planes - including the aircraft he allegedly stole in Indiana and flew to the islands off Florida's coast, despite a lack of formal flight training. He has been on the run since 2008, when he escaped from a juvenile halfway house in Renton, Washington, after pleading guilty to three counts of burglary and being sentenced to three years. He was called the "barefoot bandit" because he was without shoes when he allegedly broke into houses.
Harris-Moore, who has been running from American law enforcement since escaping from a Washington state halfway house in 2008, gained fame and thousands of fans who admired his ability to evade arrest. He is suspected of stealing cars, boats and at least five planes — including the aircraft he allegedly stole in Indiana and flew to the islands off Florida's coast, despite a lack of formal flight training. The 19-year-old is a skilled outdoorsman who honed his abilities growing up in the woods of Camano Island in Puget Sound about 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Seattle. Island police picked up his trail in Eleuthera after recovering a 44-foot (13-meter) power boat stolen from a marina on Abaco, 40 miles (65 kilometers) to the north, where he was suspected in a string of burglaries. Burglary victims in Eleuthera told The Associated Press on Saturday they had little doubt the lanky, 6-foot, 5-inch (1.9-meter) fugitive was on the island.
