Barefoot Bandit due in courtPosted: Updated:
The teenage fugitive from the Pacific Northwest captured in the Bahamas over the weekend is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow.
Colton Harris-Moore, the so-called Barefoot Bandit will face weapons and burglary charges.
Prosecutors and the family of the young man are getting ready for his return to Washington State. Harris-Moore's mother says she's glad he's safe and no one was hurt when police in the Bahamas caught up with the teenage fugitive.
Police arrested Harris-Moore early Sunday after chasing down a stolen boat. Police say they fired several shots, knocking out both engines, bringing an end to the teenager's two-and-half years he spent one step ahead of the law.
Police believe Harris-Moore moved around the country committing at least one hundred crimes in eight states, burglarizing homes, stealing cars, boats and planes.
A week ago, police say Harris-Moore stole a Cessna from Indiana, crash landing in the Bahamas.
Police say they knew then, they had the teenager cornered.
Harris-Moore had achieved cult status, dubbed the Barefoot Bandit because he often left behind along the way a signature calling card- a chalk outline of his now famous feet.
Harris-Moore's mother says she hasn't seen or talked to her son for more than two years. She says she has called a Seattle attorney about representing her son.
