The so-called "barefoot bandit," Colton Harris-Moore, pleaded guilty in
a Bahamian court Tuesday to a charge of illegally landing a plane, and was sentenced to three months in jail or a $300 fine, police said.
A deportation order was also entered, said police spokeswoman Sgt.
[Posted at 11:43 a.m.] A teenage fugitive known as the "barefoot bandit" was set to be
arraigned Tuesday before the Bahamas chief magistrate on a variety of charges, authorities said.
Colton Harris-Moore, 19, faces charges including a weapons charge, said Royal Bahamas Police Force spokeswoman Sgt. Chrislyn Skippings. She said she was awaiting court documents to find out the specific charges.
Harris-Moore is set to appear at 12 p.m. ET before Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez. At that hearing, the charges against him will be read, Skippings said.
Harris-Moore was taken into custody on Harbour Island in the Bahamas
early Sunday. He is sought in a string of home and airport break-ins along with thefts of vehicles. He faces charges in Washington state in the theft of an aircraft, and police have said they believe he stole a plane in Indiana and flew it to the Bahamas, where it was found off Abaco Island.
The teen has been on the run since he escaped from a juvenile halfway house in Renton, Washington, in 2008. The FBI had offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
"At this point, we're not aware of any requests from the U.S. government or any government for extradition of the young man," said Quincy Parker, spokesman for the Bahamas embassy in Washington. Such a request must be made, he said. "That's how it works. It's not a matter of police force to police force."
