‘Barefoot Bandit’ Expected to Appear in Court

July 12, 2010

Colton Harris-Moore, the former teenage fugitive known as the “barefoot bandit”, is expected to appear in court this week after authorities caught him in a high-speed boat chase in the Bahamas.

From CNN:

Police said 19-year-old Colton Harris-Moore was taken into custody following the chase in the waters off Harbour Island. Authorities responded to a reported sighting of Harris-Moore just after 2 a.m. ET Sunday, said police commissioner Ellison Greenslade.

“It is expected that he will appear in court on arraignment later this week to answer to a number of criminal charges,” Greenslade said Sunday.

An account of the arrest offered by a spokeswoman for Romora Bay Resort and Marina described a dramatic capture befitting a James Bond film.
