KKK flyers left in Newton County neighborhood
Placeholder Image

A Newton County neighborhood found KKK flyers in their driveways between Sunday evening and early Monday morning, and the Newton County Sheriff's Office is closely monitoring the situation.

The flyers were distributed in the Chestnut Corners subdivision off County Line Road. They were placed in Ziploc bags weighed down by rocks and left in driveways in the ethnically diverse neighborhood, according to NCSO Public Information Officer Cortney Morrison.

With propaganda such as, "Help save our race," and "White pride = White power!" the flyers are not illegal, nor is leaving them in driveways.

Although no law has been broken, Morrison urged anyone who had been threatened, felt threatened or received the flyers, to contact the NCSO at (678) 625-1400.

Newton County does not have a chapter of the KKK; however, it is not illegal to have one.
The flyers came from a chapter in North Carolina called the Loyal White Knights of the KKK.

Morrison said it would become an issue if it begins to threaten or harm anyone or becomes part of criminal activity.
