stolen plane fits ‘Bare­foot Bandit’ mold

Austin American-Statesman - - WEDNESDAYBRIEFING -

NAS­SAU — Po­lice were hunt­ing for a pi­lot who van­ished af­ter wreck­ing a small plane. In­ves­ti­ga­tors sus­pect an Amer­i­can on the run dubbed “the Bare­foot Bandit.” The Cessna that crashed in shal­low wa­ters off Abaco is­land was stolen more than 1,000 miles away in Bloom­ing­ton, Ind. U.S. of­fi­cials said the heist was sim­i­lar to thefts at­trib­uted to 19-year-old Colton Har­ris-Moore, a Washington state teenager who has no for­mal flight train­ing but is sus­pected of steal­ing cars and planes since es­cap­ing from a half­way house near Seat­tle in 2008.
