US grand jury indicts 'Barefoot Bandit'

US grand jury indicts 'Barefoot Bandit'

The 19-year-old "Barefoot Bandit," who is accused in a two-year string of thefts from Washington state to the Caribbean, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Seattle.
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.
