On Sunday, one of the Northwest’s most elusive and prolific criminals was finally caught in the Bahamas after two years on the lam! Nineteen year old Colton Harris Moore, aka the Barefoot Bandit, is accused of a long string of property thefts including stealing cars, boats, and planes.
Not that I want to encourage crime or evading criminal punishment, but perhaps the Barefoot Bandit could have fared better had he utilized the basic necessities ethos of a preparedness kit. Instead he (allegedly) stole boats, broke into homes to watch television, and bought girls drinks at local bars, after crash landing a plane on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera a week ago. Thankfully, his lack of preparedness knowledge left a wide open trail so authorities could finally nab him!!
