The Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering a $10,000 (USD) reward for information leading to the arrest of Colton Harris-Moore. He is a white male, between 6'03" and 6'05" tall thin, and may have suffered recent injuries. Harris-Moore is suspected of stealing cars, boats and airplanes in an attempt to avoid capture by law enforcement.
On July 4, 2010 a Cessna 400 airplane was stolen from Monroe County Airport in Bloomington, Indiana. The Cessna was located on Abaco Island in the Bahamas. The theft was consistent with previous crimes committed by Harris-Moore.
In addition to an arrest warrant for plane theft from the United States District Court, Western District of Washington, Harris-Moore is wanted by Island County, Washington, San Juan County Washington, and Madison County, Nebraska. Additional charges are pending in several other states.
