Reward offered in flower box vandalism

STE. GENEVIEVE -- A $500 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for destroying two of the flower boxes that were recently installed on the railing of the Fourth Street Bridge over the South Gabouri Creek.

This photo was taken shortly after the flower boxes were installed.

The damaged was apparently done overnight.

This is what is left of the two boxes seen in the photo above. The boxes on the west side of the bridge were also damaged.

The boxes were installed by volunteers with the city's beautification group and filled with flowers and other plants.
