MOUNT VERNON, Wash. —

The legal troubles aren't over for Colton Harris-Moore, the youthful `Barefoot Bandit' who led police on a two-year crime spree in stolen boats, cars and planes.

The 21-year-old, who is already serving a seven-year prison term, faces new theft and burglary charges in Washington.

Harris-Moore pleaded guilty to state and federal charges stemming from a cross-country run that took him from the Pacific Northwest to the Bahamas, where he was arrested in a hail of bullets in 2010.

Skagit County Prosecutor Rich Weyrich (WY'-rick) declined to sign on to the plea agreement resolving state charges, and this month he filed new charges. Harris-Moore is accused of stealing a plane belonging to an Anacortes couple and flying it to the Orcas Island airport in February 2010.

Weyrich says he will seek an exceptional sentence.
