How Many Burglaries Can a Hermit Pull Off in Over 27 Years in the Maine Woods?

About 1,000, police say. Which is quite a lot of times for alleged hermit burglar Christopher Knight to visit cabins near his central Maine campsite, and never see anybody. Cops said the only person he saw in 27 years away from civilization was a lone hiker. Knight told the cops he spent the rest of his time reading books and meditating. Asked what he read, he said, “I read whatever books I can steal.”
