Cattle rustlers are riding again in Auburn but an effort to “cut ’em off at the pass” hasn’t worked yet. Police reported Tuesday that an eight-month-old Holstein calf was stolen from a barn owned by George Fields of the West Hardscrabble Road. Detective Walter Hall said the animal is valued at $250 and weighed about 300 pounds.
