New Charges For 'Barefoot Bandit' In Plane Theft

Posted: Updated:

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) - The legal troubles aren't over for the 'Barefoot Bandit' who led police on a 2-year crime spree in stolen boats, cars and planes.
    
Colton Harris-Moore is already serving a 7-year prison term and now faces new theft and burglary charges in Washington.
    
The 21-year-old pleaded guilty to state and federal charges stemming from a 2010 cross-country run that took him from the Pacific Northwest to the Bahamas, where he was arrested in a hail of bullets.
    
The Skagit County prosecutor declined to sign on to the plea agreement resolving state charges and this month filed new charges. Harris-Moore is accused of stealing a plane belonging to an Anacortes couple and flying it to the Orcas Island airport.
