BEAUMONT - Police in Beaumont are looking for a group of suspects that stole more than $30,000 worth of lawn mowing equipment from a local business.

Those alleged thieves also stole a Beaumont business man's dream.

There’s a few business calls Marco Garcia cannot answer, this after his entire lawn business was stolen from his own front yard.

“Imagine if you have something you work with every day and the next day it’s gone, it’s hard.” He says. 

Garcia says he had weed eaters, blowers, trimmers, all ready for next days’ work, but now it's gone..

The Beaumont Police Department says it happened early in the morning on September the 12th, and although there is surveillance video, police say the images aren't great, and has made the investigation difficult.

Garcia says the thieves made it difficult by spray painting the cameras to avoid leaving evidence.

Now he's left with spray paint on his cameras, and the picture of thieves getting away with his livelihood.

“I just want to find out who did it, and if I can get back some of my equipment back,” says Garcia.

He’s hoping the community helps him recover the the equipment he uses to make a living to feed his family.

Garcia says a cash reward will be given to anyone who can help recover his equipment and capture the suspects.
