This is prolly the greatest news article of ALL TIME.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) —

A state police affidavit says a Maine man who lived in the woods as a hermit for nearly three decades was carrying bacon, marshmallows and $395 in cash when he was arrested on burglary charges.

An affidavit obtained by the Kennebec Journal lists the items 47-year-old Christopher Knight possessed when he was arrested this month on charges he stole food from a camp for children with special needs.

The items also include keys, pliers, electrical tape, a watch, a baseball hat, coffee, hamburger patties, chicken nuggets, cheese, corn syrup and potato chips.

Since his arrest, Knight has attracted a telephoned marriage proposal and a stranger’s offer to bail him out. Knight rejected the bail offer and remains jailed.

Police say he may have been responsible for 1,000 burglaries overall.

Until this point, I’d never thought about stealing my bacon. That’d definitely save me some cash.

Don’t tell ManBacon, but I was the one who phoned in the marriage proposal.
