Beaumont burglary caught on camera

BEAUMONT - By Justin Hinton, KFDM News

Video surveillance captured a man breaking into Bayou Construction and stealing several items.

“You just want to do something,” General Manager Darren Freeman said. “You want to stop it when you see them taking stuff that you work pretty hard for is just frustrating.”

The video shows a man crashing into the garage door, slipping through a hole in the damaged door and walking around the garage. The man even made a stop at the refrigerator.

 Freeman says he stole a laptop, saws, a weed eater and hand tools.
He says the damage to the door combined with the stolen items totaled $4,000.

“Even though the security video is hazy and kind of hard to make out, I promise there is someone out there who knows who did this, and they are going to do the right thing and call us,” Sgt. Rob Flores with the Beaumont Police Department said.

This is the second time this year Bayou Construction has been robbed.

Freeman says they are currently undergoing upgrades in their security system to prevent future break-ins.

“We’re actually building gates, heavier duty gates to at least make it a little harder for them to gain access,” he said.

They’ve also upgraded their camera system. He’s hoping all of these measures will stop the criminals once and for all.Beaumont burglary caught on camera
