      Alleged 'Barefoot Bandit' to face Bahamas judge

      A resourceful teenage fugitive who police have called the "Barefoot Bandit" is expected to make his first court appearance today in the Bahamas.

      Police say Colton Harris-Moore faces a "litany" of charges, including suspicion of illegal weapons possession stemming from the week he spent in the Bahamas trying to evade police.

      Police Commissioner Ellison Greenslade said Harris-Moore was being interviewed by investigators but declined to say whether the 19-year-old had made any kind of statement to authorities.

      Police captured American before dawn Sunday following a high-speed boat chase. He allegedly committed a string of burglaries since crash-landing a plane in the Bahamas a week earlier.

      The Washington state native is suspected of stealing cars, boats and at least five airplanes after his 2008 escape from a halfway house.
