Last updated on Monday, July 12, 2010

(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - The so-called “barefoot bandit” isn’t leaving any more footprints in the sand.

Police in the Bahamas say they have caught the Wiley 19-year-old on a northern island and plan to fly him to Nassau.

Colton Harris-Moore has been sought since he allegedly crash-landed a stolen plane a week ago.

He escaped from a Washington state halfway house in 2008.

He's accused of stealing the plane from the Monroe County, Indiana Airport.
