Has infamous teen bandit Colton Harris-Moore fled the gloomy Pacific Northwest for the sunny summer warmth of the Midwest?

Police there are investigating that possibility after a string of burglaries and thefts in South Dakota that bear the distinct signature of the notorious “Barefoot Bandit.”

While authorities don’t know for sure if their suspect is Harris-Moore, police in Yankton, S.D., have been contacted by their counterparts in the Northwest, asking them to look into the possibility.

Yankton’s assistant police chief, Jerry Hisek, said the Northwest agencies’ interest was triggered by a rash of crimes, including break-ins and thefts of vehicles at airports and burglarized homes, that match Harris-Moore’s profile.
