Weapons Charges For 'Barefoot Bandit' in Bahamas

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) - Bahamian Police Commissioner Ellison Greenslade says the so-called "Barefoot Bandit" will face trial in the island chain for weapons possession and other charges.

Greenslade tells reporters the weapons charge is the most serious of a "litany" of charges in the Bahamas for Colton Harris-Moore.

He is also expected to be charged with burglaries committed during his weeklong hideout in the island chain.

The police commissioner spoke at a news conference Monday. He says Harris-Moore did not fire on police during his capture Sunday.

He described the suspect as "intelligent" and "mature."

The 19-year-old American is expected to make his first court appearance on Tuesday.
