BEEVILLE – The Beeville Police Department and Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers are looking for information that can lead to arrests in a number of recent riding lawn mower thefts.

CBCS will pay rewards of up to $1,000 for information that could lead to an arrest in any of the crimes.

BPD Chief Joe Treviño said the first report city police received was on the afternoon of Nov. 24.

A resident of the 200 block of North Jackson Street told Patrolman Chris Haller that someone took a Husker Super riding mower worth $1,498 from his property.

The next day, officers spoke to two more victims. One man told officers on the morning of Nov. 25 that he noticed his black Craftsman riding mower was missing from his yard in the 400 block of West Walton Street.

The victim said the mower was worth $1,900.

A man in the 600 block of West Walton contacted police that evening to report that someone had taken his $400, green Craftsman mower from his yard.

Then, on Nov. 26, a man living in the 500 block of North Minnesota Street called police to report that someone had broken into his storage shed and had taken a green Craftsman mower, a red and black toolbox, a black dolly, a Craftsman red and silver push mower and a 25-foot extension cord.

On Monday, Beeville police took another report. That time the victim had not lost a riding mower to thieves, but someone did take a $350 yellow Champion generator and a $150 stand light from the back of his pickup in the 1500 block of North Madison Street.

Anyone who has information on any of the thefts may contact Crime Stoppers at 362-0206. Toll-free calls may be made from out of town to (877) 362-0206.

Witnesses who provide information to Crime Stoppers always remain anonymous.
