Maine hermit charged with hundreds of burglaries says glasses are the only thing he owns

A man who lived as a hermit in the woods of central Maine for nearly three decades has told authorities his eyeglasses are the only thing he owns.

Christopher Knight, known to locals as the North Pond Hermit, appeared in Kennebec County Superior Court on Tuesday for a status conference on his burglary case.

The 47-year-old Knight was arrested in April when, authorities say, he tripped a surveillance sensor while stealing food from a camp. Investigators say he may be responsible for 1,000 burglaries in the years he lived in the woods.

The Kennebec Journal reports (http://bit.ly/10xNs4x) Knight wore wire-rimmed glasses instead of the thick, black-framed ones he had when he was arrested. He said they are the only thing he owns and that he had them since the late 1980s.
