ELLENSBURG, Wash. (AP) - Police say Ku Klux Klan fliers have been found on lawns and driveways in the central Washington city of Ellensburg.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports (https://goo.gl/G6pnBS ) three residents reported finding the leaflets last week. Police say the fliers were left in rock-filled bags that appeared to be thrown on to resident’s lawns and driveways at random.

It’s unclear how many were distributed.

The flier covered topics from a desire to maintain America as a nation governed by whites to opposition to abortion and support for state sovereignty.

A message left by the newspaper at a listed “Klan hotline” wasn’t immediately returned, and a related website was not operational.

On Facebook, Ellensburg police said while the flier’s content is objectionable, it is not illegal.
