LOTHIAN, Md. – On November 12, 2018 at approximately 1:00 p.m. officers responded to the Iron Stone community in Lothian for a hate/bias incident.

A member of the community discovered that an unknown subject/s had distributed Ku Klux Klan fliers around the neighborhood. The fliers were not threatening in nature, but were extremely offensive.

“The Anne Arundel County Police Department condemns this type of behavior and these racist ideologies. This mindset has no place within our county. We will continue to work extremely hard to make ALL citizens in this county feel safe and included.” Chief Timothy Altomare.

This incident, while incredibly inappropriate and offensive, appears to be non-criminal in nature as no threats were made towards a person or group of people. A report was taken and the incident documented. There is no additional information.
