Home Burglary News: Barefoot Bandit Busted

Colton Harris Moore stole a bicycle at the age of 8 and never looked back. Now 6 ft. 5 in. and 19 years old, has been busted.

He was arrested in the Bahamas after a boat chase that came to a halt when cops shot out the boats motor.

This 19 year old has never taken a flying lesson but stole a plane in Indiana and crashed it off Abaco Island and he has been hunted ever since. Then, law enforcement suspected him of stealing a 44 foot boat from a marina in Abaco.

This young adult has achieved celebrity like status with over 20,000 Facebook fans. However, Harris-Moore isn’t one to be celebrated. He steals as much from the average hard worker as he does from the dot-com rich.

But because of our sometimes warped thinking society and how fame has become an elixir, his mom hired a PR firm and got a book deal to write about her son.

Be in charge of your home security to keep burglars away:

  • Make sure your home has a “lived in” look.
    • Use indoor timers for lights, TVs and automatic shades.
  • Install security cameras that can be remotely monitored.
  • Install a home alarm system monitored by an alarm company and the police.
