Barefoot Bandit Back In Court Wednesday

Colton Harris-Moore — better known as the “Barefoot Bandit” –  is due in court  in Miami, Florida Wednesday at 1:30 pm ET for a preliminary hearing in connection with his alleged two-year crime spree, which authorities said consisted of more than 70 break-ins, plane and boat thefts in eight states, mostly  centered around the Pacific Northwest.

Harris-Moore was deported from the Bahamas Tuesday after pleading guilty to a small illegal entry charge, has learned. After Harris-Moore, 19, reached Miami late Tuesday, federal agents took the teenager into custody, as they did not have the authority to do so in the Bahamas.
