Local neighborhood hide-and-seek painted rock groups continue to blossom around Southeast Texas, but Kountze Police Chief James Slaughter warns rock hunters not to steal landscaping rocks from local businesses.

"When you are searching for rocks to paint, please be aware that you do not need to go onto the property of local businesses and take your rocks without the owners' consent," Slaughter said in a statement.
