Teen fugitive ignores surrender reward


UPI News Service, 06/09/2010 

A Washington state teenager who has become notorious as the "barefoot bandit" has passed up an offer to surrender in return for $50,000.

Jim Johanson, a lawyer in Edmonds, Wash., announced the offer last week, saying an anonymous donor had put up the money, The Everett Herald reported. Johanson said Colton Harris-Moore, 19, of Camano Island in Puget Sound had until 3 p.m. Tuesday to turn himself in, a deadline that passed without any sign of him.

Harris-Moore escaped from a juvenile facility in 2008. Investigators believe he has committed burglaries in several Washington counties, in Idaho and even across the Canadian border in British Columbia.

The 6-foot-5-inch teenager has successfully eluded police, who suspect he has sometimes traveled on stolen boats and planes.

John Henry Browne, a Seattle lawyer, said Harris-Moore's mother, Pam Kohler, called him Monday and asked him to represent her son.

Another interested party, Mike Rocha, an Everett bounty hunter, showed up on Camano Island this week and said he has a plan to find and detain Harris-Moore. Mark Brown, the Island County sheriff, said he will not work with bounty hunters and does not approve of attempts to pay for Harris-Moore's surrender.
