BEEVILLE _ The Beeville Police Department and Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers are teaming up this week to try to catch a couple of thieves.

Police Chief Joe Treviño said someone stole a $150 lawn mower and a $58 wheelbarrow from a victim’s garage in the 1600 block of West Houston Street.

The owner of the tools, a 61-year-old man, said the last time he saw the mower and wheelbarrow was last Sunday.

He left his home at about 5:30 p.m. and noticed the items were gone when he returned about three hours later.

The mower was painted green, and the wheelbarrow was a “weedeater” brand, Model 4.75. The victim said it was made of plastic and had wooden handles.

The victim said the mower can be identified by an after market bolt holding the right handle bracket.

Police also are still looking for information that could lead to an arrest in a recent trailer theft.

The victim said the 7-by-10-foot trailer with a stainless steel bottom had been stolen from behind a radiator shop at 108 W. Kennedy St. sometime after April 6.

The trailer was made of square tubing and was worth $2,000.

Anyone who might have information that could lead to an arrest in either of those incidents may be eligible for a cash reward of as much as $1,000 from Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers.

The organization may be contacted by calling 362-0206 or toll-free to (877) 362-0206.

Internet users may reach the organization by email at coastalbendcrimestoppers.com.

Witnesses never have to reveal their identities to claim a reward.

Only 12.7% of property crimes get solved. The television education received by most does no justice to the real world. NCIS may be able to scan some piece of evidence and get a printout of what the suspect had for dinner the night before he broke into the house. In the real world lock your doors, engrave your property, take measure to enhance your own safety. There are way more crooks that cops. Be part of the solution and not the problem. Sorry you lost your whole house, I hope you find it.
