'Barefoot Burglar' May Have Stolen Another Plane

February 18, 2010Colton Harris-Moore may have stolen his fourth airplane in the Pacific-Northwest, this time flying near restricted airspace relating to the Winter Olympic Games, according to a report from CNN.com. "We think it fits his pattern. We are looking for him," said San Juan County Sheriff Bill Cumming. Harris-Moore, nicknamed the ‘Barefoot Burglar,’ has no formal flight training, but his skills seem to be improving. Officials say the latest plane he allegedly stole - a Cirrus SR22 worth about $650,000 -  was found undamaged in mud near a landing strip on Orcas Island.

Harris-Moore is suspected of stealing a total of four airplanes. Previous aircraft have been badly damaged and all crashed near Harris-Moore’ known residence. While he has not been charged with any crimes related to the aircraft thefts, he also faces 11 ground-based criminal charges.
