Colton Harris-Moore, the teenage fugitive police have dubbed the “Barefoot Bandit,” is escorted handcuffed by Bahamian authorities to the court building in Nassau on Tuesday.

MIAMI (AP) -- The teenager known as the "Barefoot Bandit"
suspected in dozens of thefts and other crimes is due back in a
Miami courtroom.

A hearing was set Friday for 19-year-old Colton Harris-Moore to
determine if he has a lawyer, whether he deserves release on bail and when he will return to Seattle to face criminal charges.

Harris-Moore was sent Tuesday to Miami from the Bahamas, where he was captured after allegedly flying a stolen plane to the islands.

On the run for two years after escaping from a halfway house, he is a suspect in about 70 crimes in eight states, some he allegedly committed while shoeless. He was first arrested at age 12.

Harris-Moore is something of a folk hero, with his Facebook page listing more than 89,000 friends
