Several F250 and F350 trucks have been stolen in Beaumont over the past few weeks. Please lock your vehicles and put away any valuables. An alarm system or a steering wheel club would be a deterrent for the suspects. Suspects have been identified, and the investigation is progressing.
Catalytic convertors are still being cut off vehicles at all hours of the day, as it only takes a few minutes.
Please do not confront the individuals that are stealing your vehicle or property. Instead, report it to the police. The Beaumont RCMP attended a complaint where the victim confronted the suspect, but another suspect attempted to hit the victim with their vehicle. Always assume there is another suspect that is acting as the lookout for the suspect that is engaged in criminal activity. The RCMP wants you to be safe.
