Bahamas police: 'Barefoot bandit' apprehended

After eluding authorities for years from Washington state to Indiana, a notorious teenage fugitive called the "barefoot bandit" was arrested Sunday after a high-speed boat chase in the Bahamas, police said.

Police said 19-year-old Colton Harris-Moore was taken into custody without incident following the chase in the waters off Harbour Island. Authorities responded to a reported sighting of Harris-Moore just after 2 a.m ET Sunday, said police commissioner Ellison Greenslade.

However, an account of the arrest offered by a spokeswoman for Romora Bay Resort and Marina described a dramatic capture befitting a James Bond film.

    I run a company on Camano Island where 99% of all my clients live . Colton Harris Moore aka The Barefoot Bandit (CHMBB) is lucky there isnt a bullet in his forehead ! I hope they tear into that laptop he was holding onto and find out if anyone was helping him . If anyone did help him they should get the clinker just like the sister to the cop killer in Washington State .
    As for CHMBB's mother PLEASE do us all a favor and put her in jail !
