Feb. 23, 2010— -- ABC News has learned the infamous alleged "barefoot bandit," 18-year-old Colton Harris-Moore who police say is behind a string of burglaries and the thefts of several boats and airplanes in exclusive vacation communities in the Pacific Northwest, may have attempted to steal another plane last Friday.

The failed attempt sources tell ABC News, came at the very same airport -- on Orcas Island, about 80 miles north of Seattle -- where police reportedly suspect that Harris-Moore landed another stolen plane just eight days earlier.

According to two people familiar with the investigation, a hanger was broken into and the keys were found left inside the plane on Oct. 19 after what appeared to be a failed theft, and police believe it was Harris-Moore, although no formal announcement on the break-in has been made by law enforcement.

Harris-Moore's name was back in the headlines on Feb 11, after a $600,000 Cirruss SR22 single-engine plane was stolen from an airport in Anacortes, Wash.and was landed, officials say, rather sloppily off the runway into the mud at the Orcas Island Airport.
