The Carroll County Independent, Center Ossipee, NH

Friday, April 1, 1983

Members of the Albert Cross family awoke to discover a pickup parked by an open barn door on their farm near Conway, N.H. When Larry Cross flipped on an outside light, the truck sped away. A slain heifer was left behind. About 15 minutes later, the farmer's son saw three men run up the road and into the barn. Cross grabbed a rifle and followed, cornering the would-be rustlers, two of whom carried axes. They surrendered immediately.
