To their astonishment, they later learned that the culprit in the 2008 heist was actually seventeen-year-old Colton Harris-Moore, a poor, neglected, troubled kid who’d had no formal flight training. This was the first time Colt had flown a plane, and yet it wouldn’t be the last. He was in the midst of a years-long crime spree — boosting cars, boats, identities, airplanes, and lots of food.
