#UPDATE# – Colton Harris was caught today in the Bahamas… I had a feeling this would be the end… he wasn’t even fishing! Read more here.
I read the first story in Outside Magazine a while ago and caught news today via the OM Facebook page about a possible update on Colton Harris, teenage criminal mastermind and modern day Robbin Hood (without the benevolence or otherwise good intentions).
Seems Colton may have stolen a plane in Indiana and flown to Abaco… where he promptly crashed. The kid taught himself to fly, but has yet to get a hang of the landing part.
From the Black Fly Bonefish Club:
@BFBonefishClub :Much excitement over the barefoot bandit landing in our frontyard at the lodge. Local hog hunters were not successful in finding him.
Let’s see… a 6’5″ white kid roaming around Abaco? How long could the kid really hold out? I’m guessing he’ll be sticking out a bit when he isn’t crashing in the vacation homes of wealthy Americans who may have second/third/fourth homes in the Bahamas.
I didn’t see a fly rod in this picture…
