ROME, Maine (AP) - Authorities say a man who lived like a hermit for decades in the woods of central Maine and may be responsible for more than 1,000 burglaries has been captured.
Police say 47-year-old Christopher Knight was arrested last week while stealing food from a camp in Rome.
Authorities on Tuesday found the campsite where they believed Knight - known as the North Pond Hermit - has lived for 27 years.
State police said they had no information on whether Knight has an attorney. A message could not be left after hours for officials at the Kennebec County Jail in Augusta, where Knight was being held on $5,000 bail on charges of burglary and theft.
