Dartmouth police Sgt. Allen Shaw said Monday that 39 of the animals have been found in New Holland, Pa.

Police are still investigating, and Shaw had no additional details about the alleged theft or location of the other cows.

Police say the bandits struck the communal farm on Old Fall River Road late Saturday. The cows are worth an estimated $50,000.

The farm on Old Fall River Road is reached by a winding dirt road and has been owned by Mary Robinson since 2001, although the cows don’t belong to her. One man tells the Standard-Times ( ) that the owner rents out portions of the farm to tenants.
