HARRINGTON, Del.- A day after it was reported that the Seaford Police Department was investigating the distribution of dozens of KKK fliers there, the Harrington Police Department is reporting similar incidents in that city.  

Harrington police said Tuesday that people who live in the city have reported that they have found plastic bags thrown in their yards containing information relating to racist organizations, namely the KKK.

Police said they are aware of the packages and are currently investigating the situation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Harrington Police Department at 302-398-4493, ext. 21.    

Police in the city of Seaford, located approximately 20 miles south of Harrington, reported that on Saturday night a KKK flier was found in front of Macedonia AME Church on 431 N. North St. The following day, 11 more KKK fliers were found in the Virginia Commons neighborhood. As of Monday morning, an additional 13 were found in Seaford. 

The fliers, which are inside baggies filled with pebbles to help weigh them down, feature slogans like "The KKK Wants You," and racially-charged messages targeting blacks, Jews and Latinos. 

Seaford police on Tuesday afternoon said that after consulting with the Delaware Attorney General's Office, there will be no charges pursued in this investigation. Police provided no further details.  

According to online reports, similar KKK fliers have also been spotted in Smyrna and Dover in Delaware and Vienna and Princess Anne in Maryland.
