The teenager known as "The Barefoot Bandit" has stolen everything from boats and planes to cars and jewelry. Now investigators believe Colton Harris-Moore was caught on surveillance video at a Northeast Nebraska airport.

The images of Harris-Moore were collected earlier this month. Police have also collected fingerprints that may help link Harris-Moore to the theft of a Cadillac Escalade from the Norfolk airport earlier this month, which later turned up in Pella, Iowa.

Harris-Moore, a 6-foot-5 19-year-old from Camano Island, Wash., escaped from a halfway house south of Seattle in April 2008.

Authorities believe he's committed numerous burglaries around the Northwest since then, and that he's stolen boats, cars and even a few small airplanes.

He got his nickname by reportedly committing some of the crimes in his bare feet.
