The infamous teenage thief known as the "Barefoot Bandit" is facing new legal trouble. 

Colton Harris-Moore, who already has several local and federal charges filed against him, learned Tuesday that San Juan County has filed 16 new charges against him. 

The new charges include 11 burglaries of homes and businesses and the theft of three boats and two airplanes.

Harris-Moore grabbed international attention in 2008 when he began a two-year crime spree spanning nine states, British Columbia and the Bahamas.

Harris-Moore’s run from the law ended after a dramatic high-speed boat chase in the Bahamas in July 2010.

He was indicted in November on five counts of interstate transportation of a stolen plane, boat and gun theft, along with being a fugitive in possession of a firearm and flying a plane without a license.

Currently, Harris-Moore is said to be negotiating a plea deal with 20 state and federal jurisdictions. 

Harris-Moore is being held in a federal detention center in Seattle.
