The "Barefoot Bandit" caught in the Bahamas

Nineteen year old Colton Harris-Moore, is in jail and coming home soon.

His mother says, she's proud of him. Thank God for mothers right?

His film rights have been sold to 20th Century Fox.

CNN has reported that his Facebook page has allegedly 58,000 friends (actually, 63,988 as of right now).

FBI Seattle says its a sad thing that he has been turned into a hero by the public.

This kid has broken into home in the Seattle area. Stolen boats, even a plane. He apparently flew a stolen plane from Illinois to the Bahamas. Sharp kid, that takes some figuring, or you end up swimming in the Caribbean. But he wasn't smart enough to disengage the plane's beacon. The Coast Guard, has kind of an expertise on tracking this kind of thing (think oh, I don't know, drug smugglers?).

Look to more of all this, I'm sure, coming soon....
