Colton Harris-Moore — better known as the ‘Barefoot Bandit ‘ — waived extradition before a federal judge in Miami, Florida on Friday, and is headed back to his home state of Washington, RadarOnline.com has learned.
There, Harris-Moore faces charges for an alleged two-year crime spree, which officials say consisted of more than 70 break-ins and plane and boat thefts in eight states centered around the Pacific Northwest.
The 19-year-old, whose alleged exploits have gone viral to the tune of more than 89,000 Facebook friends, got his nickname because he is believed to have committed many of the crimes he’s accused of while barefoot.
He allegedly left a calling card at one of his heists: a chalk outline of his feet he drew this past February at a market in Washington’s San Juan islands following a robbery.
Harris-Moore, a native of Camano Island, Washington, was arrested in the Bahamas Sunday by local authorities after a high-speed boat chase.
