Alleged 'Barefoot Bandit' to face charges in US

The American teenager who authorities call the "Barefoot Bandit" is now in the U.S. to face charges after being deported from the Bahamas.

An initial court appearance for Colton Harris-Moore is scheduled for today in Miami. It's likely he'll eventually be taken to Seattle, where he was indicted.

Law enforcement officials escorted Harris-Moore on a commercial flight to Miami yesterday to face prosecution for a two-year string of break-ins and plane thefts across the United States. The FBI took him off the plane and put him into a waiting car.

The 19-year-old convict was deported to the U.S. just hours after he pleaded guilty to a minor offense in the Bahamas, where he was arrested.
