Colton Harris-Moore, the so-called 'Barefoot Bandit' - was deported from the Bahamas Tuesday after pleading guilty to a small illegal entry charge, and was slated to face a Miami judge in connection with his other alleged crimes on Wednesday.
RadarOnline.com has learned that 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.
Harris-Moore, who is from Camano Island, Washington, was arrested in the Bahamas over the weekend by local authorities after a high-speed boat chase.
Authorities said the teen is implicated in a two-year crime spree consisting of more than 70 break-ins and plane thefts in eight states, mainly in the Pacific Northwest.
