GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas — As the Memorial Day weekend comes to a close, the work is just getting started for some.
The party on Crystal Beach left quite a mess along the coast.
A 12NewsNow viewer shared a video of some of the trash left behind on the sand after the weekend festivities.
Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset says the mess left behind is 'pathetic.'
"Each holiday, each major weekend we have the same problem. It's pathetic. If they bring something with them, please take it back home," Trochesset said. "If they wouldn't want someone to do this to their backyard, please don't come down to Galveston County or any beach and do this."
He says he typically brings in inmates to help with the cleanup after major events, but he's not sure if he'll be able to do that this year because of COVID-19 restrictions.
