Speaking of Neal Karlinsky, our Seattle affiliate KOMO and the Associated Press are reporting that 18-year-old halfway house runaway Colton Harris-Moore, also known as the “Barefoot Bandit,” may have struck again. The teen’s catch-me-if-you-can story has made him a bit of a cult hero. Police believe he’s pulled off a string of daring crimes that include stealing airplanes, boats and cars, and burglarizing homes in the Pacific Northwest. Every time, he disappears without a trace. There is a Facebook fan page, a folk song and a t-shirt dedicated to his lore. This time, a stolen plane was abandoned on Orcas Island, Washington, and a market broken into. Police say it has all the markings of “Run, Colton, Run.” Karlinsky profiled the Colton Harris-Moore story in December – it is embedded below. In it, Karlinsky goes to the house of the teen’s mother and an unidentified man threatens to go in the house to retrieve a gun if Karlinsky doesn't get off the property.
