TRENTON, MIch. (WJBK) - Was it a prank or a real recruiting effort by the Ku Klux Klan?
Small notes promoting a KKK website and phone number were found on the lawns of some Trenton residents.
A recording on what was labeled a KKK hotline, we heard this message by calling the phone number attached to flyer distributed in Trenton.
"It was basically an advertisement for a KKK group," said a resident.
But it's how the flyers are being passed out that has some people disturbed and angry.
"To me it kind of shook me up, " the woman said. "This is my neighborhood and we got kids here."
This woman did not want to be identified but her husband found this note in the front lawn of her neighborhood. And she wasn't alone at least 10 others on her block got some form of propaganda promoting the Ku Klux Klan.
"Another neighbor of ours went out there and collected the rest of them," the woman said. "So kids and other young children on the block wouldn't find them."
The messages were delivered in lunch baggies, weighted down with rocks and tossed in people's yards. According to one neighbor it likely happened between midnight and 4 a.m. on Tuesday."
So disturbed it was handed over to the police.
"I don't want this in my neighborhood, so he made sure to let the proper authorities know." the resident said.
Police are not sure what, if any law was violated as a result of distributing this message, however they are actively looking for whomever is responsible.
