Catch Me If You Can. 18-Year-Old Barefoot Burglar (7 pics + text + 2 videos)

Posted in Pictures   10 Dec 2009   / 35502 views

This guy’s name is Colton Harris-Moore, 18, who’s been playing with the police for the last two years in a “catch me if you can” kind of game.
He was born on Camano Island, Washington and started living in the woods at the age of 7. He broke into holiday houses in that area, stole some blankets, food and then went back into the woods for several days.

He is now charged with at least 50 burglaries and with the stealing of two light aircrafts which he learned how to fly with thanks to video games, but sadly enough, he doesn’t know how to land without crashing them. He also stole a speedboat and a car, which he crashed into a “roadside gas storage tank, using the explosion as a diversion to escape back into the woods.”

While braking into the homes, to thank his victims, he leaves them cheeky notes with pictures of himself. And apparently, he commits his crimes barefoot, that’s where the nickname comes from.
“In April 2008, after being sent to a juvenile detention centre, he complained that the beds were too short for his lanky frame and went on the run.”
Now this was the largest manhunt in recent days. Three dozen sheriffs, aided by specialist armed units and an FBI helicopter, fanned out across Camano Island but failed to capture him.

But he became some kind of local legend, he’s even got his Facebook page and his fans.
There are even T-shirts on sale with his picture and a slogan: Fly, Colton, Fly!

What is also quite interesting is that “Hollywood producers have lodged lucrative film deals with his family and offered to pay for lawyers if he gives himself up.”
And here’s his mother’s advice of the day about him flying and crashing aircrafts: “…wear a parachute and practise your landing.”

I hope they never catch him.... Frankly this guy really isn't hurting anyone other then some insurance companies who are going to rape us anyways. He is providing better entertainment then most of these stupid reality TV shows on TV now days.
