KKK Fliers Appear in Wolfe City

Wolfe City police and the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office are looking into KKK fliers left at homes around the city. Police say about 80 fliers wrapped in plastic sleeves and weighed down with rocks started showing up in residents’ driveways just before New Year’s. The fliers appear to be applications and literature about the Ku Klux Klan.

In a statement, Sheriff Randy Meeks called the incident "very unsettling to everyone."

He said there were no threats to any people or property in the fliers.
