Car broken into adds to the spike in summer crime
A teenager has been taken in by Beaumont Police Department for breaking into a white Dodge Ram pickup truck on the 2300 block of 21st street.
Another suspect got away. BPD believes he goes by the name of "Trae" and they are confident they will catch him soon.
BPD wants residents to be mindful that there is a crime spike that happens over summer, due to kids having too much idle time and nothing to do.
Please take precautions, don't leave anything valuable in your cars, and be sure to lock your doors.
