Cops: Trucker terrorized family

A masked North Carolina trucker armed with knives and a wire cord terrorized a Chelmsford family early yesterday in a bloody home invasion that police said included a teenage girl being held at knifepoint.

Police say the trucker pulled over on Interstate 495 early Monday before venturing into the woods to prey on a family on Pine Hill Road.

Adam Leroy Lane, 42, wore all black, including a mask, and was armed with two hunting knives and a wire cord as he moved through the woods toward the house, said Chelmsford Deputy Police Chief Scott Ubele.


After he reportedly entered the home, Lane had a confrontation with the residents including a struggle with at least one member of the family, Ubele said.

While one resident was able to phone 911, Lane allegedly stabbed another family member repeatedly in the hands.

But even after officers arrived, Lane allegedly fought with them as well.

And, from the "No Shit, Sherlock" Department:

He is “certainly a dangerous individual,” Ubele said.

Gee, all this time I thought it was the wire cord that was so dangerous.
