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.
