Police catch burglars stealing appliances from abandoned house
Crime....It's hard to catch the culprits, but sometimes with the help of community members, suspects can be caught.
In one Beaumont neighborhood, one call to police helped thwart a burglary.
Washers, dryers, refrigerators are all appliances police say two suspects loaded into the back of a pick up truck after taking them from an abandoned and condemned home on Redwood Street.
Police say the suspects planned to sell them as scrap metal.
One neighbor watched the entire theft and called police.
A short time later, the suspects were in the back of a police car.
Because investigators couldn't find the homeowners, police did not charge the suspects, but houses like the one that lured the pair of thieves are scattered throughout Beaumont.
