Serial auto burglars captured by BPD

Two serial auto burglars who have been targeting Beaumont’s west end are currently sitting in jail due to the swift response of the Beaumont Police Department's midnight patrol officers.

According to Officer Tony Harding, during the early morning hours of Thursday, October 29, 2015, Beaumont Police Department patrol officers were dispatched to the area of Ruth and Bayou Road, in references to two black males attempting to break into cars. The officers arrived quickly and spotted the two men driving away in a maroon Buick LeSabre. Officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and identified the two men as 23-year-old Beaumont resident Brian Roberts, and 25-year-old Beaumont resident Jarrit Banks. As officers searched the vehicle, they discovered stolen items from previous auto burglaries, in addition to three firearms. Banks was charged with burglarizing the vehicles, and Roberts was charged with being a felon in possession of firearms.

Thanks to their diligence and commitment to keeping Beaumont safe, our patrol officers were able to prevent these two men from committing more burglaries, in addition to getting three more guns out of the hands of dangerous men.
