Norfolk, Jun 30 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Barefoot Bandit is on the run, and the Nebraska police have also issued a warrant for him.

His real name is Colton Harris-Moore and he is a teenager, but an accomplished burglar as well. He earned the name of Barefoot Bandit, as he was seen committing many of his crimes barefoot.

While he was stealing a Cadillac Escalade from the Norfolk Airport, then he was caught on the surveillance camera too. The police have also managed to collect his fingerprints from the scene of crime as well. They now feel that they can tie him to the theft of the vehicle, so they have issued a warrant for him.

However the stolen Cadillac was later found in Pella, which is in Iowa.

The Barefoot Bandit is a teenager, but he is exceptionally tall at 6-foot-5 inches. He belongs to the Camano Island, Washington. He had been caught by the police in the past too and was booked into a halfway home, which was located in Seattle. However he managed to flee from there in April 2008, and has been on the run since then. The police also believe that he is responsible for stealing numerous boats, cars and even some planes.
