AUGUSTA (AP) — A meeting has been scheduled for people who think they may have had items stolen by a Maine man who lived alone in the woods for 27 years.

The meeting arranged by District Attorney Maeghan Maloney is scheduled for Saturday at the Skowhegan state police barracks.

The Kennebec Journal ( reported that Maloney says it is a chance for people to ask questions and see items seized from Christopher Knight’s campsite to start the process of reclaiming them.

The 47-year-old Knight was arrested last month when police say he was caught stealing food from a camp in Rome. Authorities believe the man known in local lore as the North Pond Hermit may be responsible for more than 1,000 burglaries.

Knight is being held on $25,000 bail on burglary and theft charges.
