ORCAS ISLAND—An Orcas Island woman is selling plaster castings of footprints she says were left outside her chicken coop by teen fugitive, Colton Harris-Moore.
Bidding on eBAY starts at $300. Too steep for you? Remember, this is the Barefoot Bandit - believed to be connected to break-ins and burglaries of several homes and businesses in Western Washington since his disappearance in 2008.
From the seller's eBAY site:
These are casting that were taken from the barefoot tracks that were left outside our chicken coop, in the early morning on March 18th during the man hunt for Colton Harris Moore. The massive man hunt took place on the west side of Orcas Island and this is were our property is located.
My husband and I as well as the sheriff department belive these tracks to be made by Colton Harris Moore AKA the Barefoot Bandit.
Tracks have been photographed by myself and the sheriff department.
Casting were made of plaster that was poured directly in to the barefoot tracks. The left foot was found in the wet mud left behind in a mud puddle. This made for a very deep print. When the right track was found on the hard surface of the driveway. This made a shallow track.
Along with the castings I will enclose some articals from local news papers and a magazine. Also some pictures of the tracks.
+++++PREVIOUS STORY+++++ In an article in April's Maxim Magazine, Colton Harris-Moore's mom, Pam Kohler, says her son told her he goes out in public and disguises himself. He says, 'Mom, you could walk right by me and not know who I was.' "
She also says he's not living in the woods. "I know Colt's safe because he told me about the people he's with. He has his own room, clothing, shelter, his own TV, his own iPod, his own computer. He has food. That crap about him stealing food now? He lives with a chef. They're well-to-do people.
People say he's out burglarizing all night. Well, I know for a fact he's up all night doing computer work for the people he's living with."
She tells Maxim as far as she knows, he's in the continental U.S., but probably not on Camano Island. According to Pam, Colton denies many of the crimes that make up his legend: Ripping off ATMs, stealing the first plane that crash-landed on the reservation, the other that was taken in Idaho, shooting at police."
Kohler also tells Maxim that in her last phone with colt, she's left left thinking he's going down," she says. "He told me he had something big planned. He asked me to pull that gate down to the front," she points to a rusted barn gate leaning against a rock, "because there would be a whole lot of paparazzi down there. He told me, 'Don't worry, Mom.' How can I not worry about my son winding up dead?"
Harris-Moore has been a tough one to catch, and it looks like he's still evading authorities.
Colton Harris-Moore is not officially being named a suspect in either of these two new crimes. He is believed to be connected to several home and business burglaries since his disappearance in 2008. Harris-Moore is also believed to have stolen several cars, boats, and three small airplanes.
