11/11/2010: "Barefoot Burglar Indicted In Seattle"


The U.S. Attorney’s office in Seattle has reported that Colton Harris-Moore was indicted on Federal charges Wednesday by a grand jury in Seattle, and will be arraigned on the 18th of this month. The new charges are in addition to minor charges filed in San Juan and Island county, but the latest round of charges carry some heavy fines and jail time.

Colton has made a lot of poor life choices, but stealing and piloting an aircraft and a boat across state lines may turn out to be some of his poorest choices. Four of the charges against Colton carry $250,000.00 fines and ten years in jail for each count, and piloting an aircraft without a license is punishable by up to three years in prison.

And there is the matter of his having committed his crimes while in possession of a weapon -both in Canada and in the Bahamas, where his latest two years of crime came to an end after a wild pursuit by Bahamian authorities, who opened up on Colton with automatic weapons, causing Colton to end his run of crime.

"The grand jury action today is an important step in holding Colton Harris-Moore accountable for his criminal conduct," said U.S. Attorney Jenny A. Durkan. The indictment follows the criminal complaint which was the basis for Harris-Moore's arrest in the Bahamas in July 2010.

The FBI is the lead federal agency investigating the case. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Darwin Roberts.
