‘Barefoot Bandit’ reportedly freed from work-release program.

 

The former teen car, boat and airplane thief who became known as the “Barefoot Bandit” during a two year crime spree allegedly received from his work-release program of more than six years after the law finally caught up with him.

A judge sentenced Colton Harris-Moore in 2012 to seven years imprisonment, but the court in the state of Washington transferred him to a work-release facility back in September.

The Washington Corrections Dept. told KOMO on Tuesday, Harris-Moore would remain under surveillance as he leaves Reynolds Work Release in Seattle.

The “Barefoot Bandit” was arrested after he crash-landed a stolen plane in the Bahamas in 2010. The spree began after he escaped from a Renton juvenile halfway house in 2008.

He earned his nickname after the researchers said that he left footprints in many of his offence.

Harris-Moore was sentenced to imprisonment in a deal that consolidated most of the charges against him.
