Beaumont RCMP received a complaint from a Beaumont resident who had unknowingly purchased a stolen truck.

Beaumont RCMP has received complaints of catalytic converter thefts off vehicles. The catalytic converter is a device on the underside of the vehicle that reduces the amount of polluting gases coming from the vehicle exhaust system. They are stolen because they contain expensive rare earth minerals; rhodium, platinum and palladium. These minerals are worth a lot of money. It can cost over $2000 to replace a catalytic converter and a lot more if your vehicle runs on diesel. It takes minutes for the individuals to cut the catalytic converter off a vehicle. The thefts occur during the night between 11:00 PM to 5:00 AM. The RCMP is conducting proactive patrols looking for these individuals. Please report all suspicious activity to the RCMP.
Summer is here, Beaumont RCMP in partnership with Beaumont Community Peace Officers are conducting foot patrols through park areas and the downtown core. Please engage our team and ask questions.
