Stolen Cars: Did Washington Teen Bandit Strike Midwest?
June 21, 2010, 4:56 PM
SEATTLE, WA -
Police in the Midwest are investigating whether an infamous teen burglar from Washington state is behind a string of break-ins and car thefts.
Police say that late last week, a family in Yankton, found a tall man in their home. He left, and a trail of stolen vehicles led to Norfolk, Nebraska, and Pella, Iowa, where a stolen Cadillac Escalade was found on Monday.
Yankton Assistant Police Chief Jerry Hisek says his department is forwarding DNA evidence to a state crime lab to see if the suspect might have been the 6-foot-5, 19-year-old Colton Harris-Moore. Harris-Moore is suspected of having committed dozens of burglaries and stolen boats, cars and even small airplanes since he escaped from a halfway house in 2008.
Hisek says the family didn't get a good look at the man because their house was dark.
