MIAMI, Fla.-The American teenager who authorities call the "Barefoot Bandit" will face charges in the U.S. Colton Harris-Moore was deported from the Bahamas on Tuesday and an initial court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday in Miami. It's likely he will eventually be taken to Seattle, where he was indicted.
Law enforcement officials escorted Harris-Moore on a commercial flight to Miami on Tuesday 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 United States, just hours after he pleaded guilty to a minor offense in the Bahamas, where he was arrested.
