Infamous barefoot bandit strikes Norfolk
Investigators believe Colton Harris-Moore, the teen burglar known as “The Barefoot Bandit,'' was caught on surveillance video at a northeast Nebraska airport earlier this month, so an arrest warrant has been issued.
Police have also collected fingerprints that may help link Harris-Moore to the theft of a Cadillac Escalade from the Norfolk airport earlier this month, which later turned up in Pella, Iowa. Harris-Moore, a 6-foot-5 19-year-old from Camano Island, Wash., escaped from a halfway house south of Seattle in April 2008.
Authorities believe he's committed numerous burglaries around the Northwest since then, and that he's stolen boats, cars and even a few small airplanes. He got his nickname by reportedly committing some of the crimes in his bare feet.
