HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) – A group of thieves were caught on camera stealing a Houston, Texas company’s $10,000 barbecue pit.

Surveillance video shows one suspect drive a dark SUV up to the Melange Catering company’s gate around 4 p.m. The man casually got out and pushed on the gate to see if it was open. When he got a little resistance, he came back with bolt cutters, snaps the lock and backs the truck in through the gate into the parking lot.

Then, the thieves hooked the huge trailer carrying the pit onto their SUV and drove off.

The employees of Melange Catering are hoping someone notices it and calls police to help bring it back where it belongs. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
