On the hills of Rio Grande City off of 83 once stood a monument that was a part of the city since the 1800′s.

That’s not the case anymore ever since vandals destroyed the cross that looked over the town this past Christmas day, and although the family is in much pain they do not hold hate towards the people who committed this crime.

Meanwhile, the Pena family works together with City Manager, Matt Ruszczak for plans to revive the area and replace the stolen cross.

Authorities are now asking that if anyone knows information about who is responsible for this theft to call Rio Grande City Police at 956- 488-8477.
