Houston County Courier

By Lynda Jones

By all appearances Tuesday evening, Jan. 7, "something big" was going down in Grapeland. Numerous law enforcement vehicles from Alto, Grapeland, Groveton and the Houston County Sheriff's Office were seen on the US 287 By-Pass and in town, stopping and releasing vehicles. Grapeland Police Chief Chuck Franklin was unavailable for comment Wednesday morning, Jan. 8; however, HCSO Chief Deputy G. P. Shearer said several area law enforcement agencies were simply participating in a training exercise with their canine units. According to the intake report from the Houston County Jail, no arrests were made during the exercise.
