Police Investigating Hate-Related Flyers

Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2019

Hillsborough police are investigating hate-related flyers that were distributed along some local streets this past weekend prior to a community-organized event against hate on Aug. 31.

Anyone who received a flyer or has information to share can contact Sgt. Nick Chelenza by phone at 919-296-9552 or by email. Information should include location and address of where a flyer was found.

“We stand in solidarity with Hillsborough residents, businesses, and neighbors in keeping our community safe for everybody and in making this town a place where intimidation, bullying, and expressions of hate have no place,” Mayor Tom Stevens said regarding the stance of Hillsborough’s elected leaders, police department and other town staff.

The community is asked not to post images of the flyers to avoid additional advertising of the sender’s message.
