East Texans take a lot of pride in their family cemeteries, with many scheduling family reunions and cemetery clean-up days between Easter and Memorial Day.

An increase of family visitors to the cemeteries often brings the discovery of vandalism.

The Houston County Sheriff's Office currently is investigating an incident in which unknown actors stole flowers from grave sites in the Latexo Cemetery.

On Friday, March 11, the HCSO used its presence on Facebook to reach out to the public for its assistance with this investigation.

Officials ask that anyone with information as to who may be responsible for the theft of flowers at the Latexo Cemetery, please call the HCSO at 936-544-2862.

The HCSO also asks that any citizens living in that area please report any suspicious activity they notice around the cemetery.
