Who Is Doing It?
In a classic small-town move, many myths and rumors started going around about these bizarre string of burglaries and break-ins. Eventually, locals began to create nicknames for this night bandit. Some popular ones are, “Mountain Main,” “Hungry Man,” and “North Pond Hermit.” The town was on edge about this mysterious man that breaks into homes for some necessities. Soon, the locals began to fight back. Many put forth extra security measures to make sure that the doors and windows were unable to be opened. Residents and local police were on the hunt for this thief. They even set up cameras…
The Cops Got Involvedâ¦ But Did It Help?
The cops were immediately notified about the break-ins and were involved from the start, but they made very little progress. Copious reports were filed and police investigated each and every case. Nearly three decades went by with more and more break-ins but no face to the crime… Some people even grew up with the Hermit committing his crimes. It was all they knew! That’s why it was such a big deal when he was finally caught. Things only got crazier once he was able to tell his story.
