Yet another one!

05:51 PM PDT on Wednesday, June 25, 2008 By ROB PIERCY / KING 5 News CAMANO ISLAND, Wash. – People living on the island fear a prolific teen burglar is back at work. Colton Harris-Moore ***ESCAPED FROM A GROUP HOME*** in Renton and hasn't been seen since. He was ordered to live there after his arrest last year for breaking and entering. "None of us should have to go through this," said Camano Island resident Doug Kendall. He's reinforcing the door to his storage room because he's worried about a break-in. "There's people that are concerned about safety now. It's a different story. When you're a fugitive, it's different than being the local burglar," said Kendall. Police spent weeks tracking 17-year-old Harris-Moore across the island last year as he broke into one home after another. They finally caught him and sent him to the group home. He escaped two months ago and a short time later, a new string of burglaries began on South Camano. One resident says that in the past few weeks, her garage has been broken into three times. Food and a bicycle were stolen. It happens to be the very same bike Harris-Moore allegedly stole last year, which was later recovered when he was arrested. Police are searching for Colton Harris-Moore. "Trying to discern the similarities between what he's done before and what is occurring now is a difficult task for our investigators," said Island County Sheriff Mark Brown. He says, so far, there have been no official sightings of Harris-Moore, but says the circumstantial evidence suggests it could be him. Additional deputies have been assigned to patrol Camano Island. The Sheriff says the suspect should be easy for neighbors to spot at 6-feet 5-inches tall and 200 pounds.
