December 13, 1973

Thieves working along the northern Roosevelt County border stole what must have been truckloads of items from two homes recently. The sheriff’s office reported dozens of items, including three rifles, a chair, two walkie-talkies and three tires, taken from the home of Carl Norgaards, 30 miles north of Poplar Nov. 29.

The Tom McGowan ranch, 40 miles north of Poplar, also reported a load missing Thursday of last week. McGowan told sheriff’s deputies that a television, revolver, camera, radio, statues and a number of other things were taken from his home.

There are no suspects, according to Sheriff Leo Cody.
