Eastsound, Washington Barefoot Burglar Colton Harris-Mooreon October 7, 2009 at 5:40 pm
For the past year and a half Colton Harris Moore has boldly gone where no teen has gone before. The 18 year old burglarizes vacation homes while island hopping in Western Washington State.
Breaking into homes (and some businesses) where he raids the fridge, rests on couches, steals electronics, takes pictures of himself (Left) and seems to be leaving purposeful barefoot prints most everywhere he goes.
The sheriff says it’s not funny as a more serious matter has ensued, Colton has stolen three small planes and crash landed them – leaving a trail of bare footprints behind.
An interesting story to be sure. If one wonders how the boy got himself into so much silly trouble we need to go to the last paragraph in the article to see what his Mom has to say about all this. Island-hopping burglary suspect eludes police
His mother said she doesn’t see anything wrong with what he’s suspected of doing. "I hope to hell he stole those airplanes — I would be so proud," Pam Kohler told a reporter, noting her son’s lack of training. "But put in there that I want him to wear a parachute next time."
I have to ask our Senior Northwest Coast correspondent here if the area is prone to meth labs? Mushroom forests? Children fathered by Randle McMurphy?
