DRY RUN, Pa. - Police have charged three teenagers in a cattle-rustling operation in northern Franklin County, according to Pennsylvania State Police.
Just before dawn on Oct. 9, two teenagers loaded 13 cows onto a rental truck from a Dry Run farm, Trooper Tony Manetta said Friday.
They later sold the cows at a central Pennsylvania livestock auction for about $3,800, police said.
But by the time the youths tried to cash the check at a Chambersburg area bank two days later, the authorities were on to the operation, according to police.
