Fingerprints in S. Dakota crime match those of Colton Harris-Moore

YANKTON, S.D. — Police in Yankton, S.D., said Friday that fingerprints from a June 18 burglary match those of Colton Harris-Moore, the elusive Camano Island fugitive.

Yankton Assistant Police Chief Jerry Hisek said he learned Friday that the state Division of Criminal Investigation found three of Harris-Moore’s fingerprints at the scene.

The evidence is more confirmation that Harris-Moore apparently is committing cross-country crimes. Officials in Norfolk, Neb., filed charges on Friday against Harris-Moore citing video surveillance of him filmed during a break-in there.

On Tuesday, police in Warrenton, Ore., said fingerprints taken from a boat stolen in Ilwaco, Wash., on June 1 matched Harris-Moore.

The notorious teenager has been on the run since he escaped a Seattle-area group home in April 2008.

There’s been no sign of him since June 24 when a stolen car was recovered in Dallas City, Ill.
