OMAHA, Neb. — Colton Harris-Moore is apparently moving eastward, according to authorities who think they spotted him on a Nebraska airport’s surveillance video the same day an SUV went missing.
Police in Norfolk issued an arrest warrant for the 19-year-old — dubbed the “Barefoot Bandit” after allegedly committing crimes sans footwear — after a June 19 break-in at the municipal-airport office. Police discovered an SUV also was stolen from the airport. It turned up nearly 240 miles away in Pella, Iowa.
Harris-Moore, of Camano Island, has evaded authorities since April 2008, when he escaped from a halfway house in Renton. He is accused of breaking into dozens of homes since and committing burglaries across Washington, and in British Columbia and Idaho.
He’s believed to have stolen boats, cars, even several small airplanes that have been hot-wired and then crash-landed.
