YANKTON, SD -
South Dakota authorities have confirmed that fingerprints found at the scene of a Yankton burglary match those of the "Barefoot Bandit."
Yankton assistant police chief Jerry Hisek says he was notified Friday that state Division of Criminal Investigation found three of 19-year-old Colton Harris-Moore's fingerprints at the scene of a June 18 break-in. The teen had already been named a suspect.
Harris-Moore, of Camano Island, Washington, has evaded authorities since April 2008, when he escaped from a halfway house south of Seattle. He is accused of breaking into dozens of homes since and committing burglaries across Washington, as well as in British Columbia, Idaho and Nebraska.
Harris-Moore was dubbed "The Barefoot Bandit" after allegedly committing crimes sans footwear.
