Police say serial propane thief on the run

Propane thief


Police are searching for a man they say stole over 200 filled propane tanks over the last few weeks. 

According to a BPD press release, police have obtained still photos taken from surveillance equipment of a white male who loaded propane tanks into a red or maroon, four door sedan. The vehicle has damage to the back left side and may have a missing front right hubcap. 

Most of the surveillance was captured early Sunday, June 30 at the Caldwood Food Mart at 55. E. Caldwood. Other thefts occurred at “various Dollar General Stores, Market Basket stores, and CVS stores in Beaumont’s south and west ends,” the press release said. 

Detectives suspect the same man is responsible for all the thefts and are asking the public’s help in locating the suspect.
