The Laurel Police Department has launched a hate crime investigation after Anti-Semitic pamphlets turned up in several neighborhoods on July 2, 2018.

Residents started reporting the findings just after 8 a.m. Investigators recovered the documents, but there could be more out there that weren’t turned in yet.

Laurel Police are asking that anyone with information related to this incident or who may have received one of these pamphlets or any other similar type of material to call the Laurel Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division at (301) 498-8002.  Tips can also be emailed to [email protected].
