In this episode, Amber covers the crime spree of Colton Harris Moore who at the time was dubbed the Barefoot Bandit. Colton was just a young boy who dreamed of flying when he escaped a juvenile detention center in Renton, WA. The 2 years that followed include multiple stolen planes, boats and vehicles, leading authorities from several law enforcement agencies on a wild goose chase that ends in the Bahamas.
