Maine hermit arrested after living in the woods for 27 years.
A man who lived like a hermit for 27 years, in the forests of Maine, has been arrested and could be responsible for hundreds of thefts.
Christopher Knight, 47, walked into the woods shortly after the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident, and had lived nearly without human contact in a self-made camp ever since.
Police arrested him early at the nearby Pine Tree Camp, where he was stealing food and supplies. He has been charged with one count of burglary so far but could be responsible for hundreds more.
