Federal grand jury indicts 'Barefoot Bandit'

SEATTLE (AP) - November 10, 2010

The U.S. Attorney's office says Colton Harris-Moore was indicted Wednesday on charges including interstate transportation of a stolen aircraft and being a fugitive in possession of a firearm.

Harris-Moore is nicknamed the "Barefoot Bandit" because police say he wore no shoes during some of the thefts he's accused of committing.

After a two-year run from the law, Harris-Moore was caught July 10 in the Bahamas a week after authorities say he crash-landed an airplane stolen from an Indiana airport. Bahamian authorities launched an extensive manhunt for the teenager and arrested him as he tried to flee in a boat.
