( 6:15am 7-11-10) The Associated Press has reported the arrest of Colton Harris-Moore, (aka the “Barefoot Burglar”) on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.

Colton is now on his way to Nassau, where, not surprisingly, the local authorities plan to hold a news conference.

The report states Eleuthera police “picked up his trail in Eleuthera after recovering a 44-foot (13-meter) power boat stolen from a marina on Abaco, 40 miles (65 kilometers) to the north, where he was suspected in a string of burglaries.”

Sightings of Colton have been almost as rare as sightings of Big Foot, but the captain of a ferry boat that runs to the island, is quoted by AP as stating “ he was returning from Harbour Island in northern Eleuthera on Wednesday evening when he saw a tall, white teenager bathing or swimming in an inlet near the ferry landing.

Ferry service employee Stan Pennerman also said he saw Harris-Moore lurking in the woods the same day… Neither man thought much of it until they noticed the next morning that somebody had damaged the ignition system on three of their boats.”

Colton's mom, Pam Kohler, has also been in the news after she was reported to have recently entered into an agreement with O. Yale Lewisan, a Seattle "entertainment lawyer", to manage her foray into marketing her son's story.

The UK Guardian quoted Kohler as stating "I'm glad he's [Colton] able to enjoy beautiful islands, but they extradite. It doesn't help matters at all," she said.

It is not clear what "matters" she is concerned about, but one can bet the “based on a true story” Hollywood tale will no doubt be coming to the big screen soon ( Related Story).
