LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Ku Klux Klan recruitment fliers have returned to Lafayette.

On Tuesday morning News 18 received a report of fliers found on Ferry Street and Main Street.

Operation Ink, Lafayette Brewing Company and McCord Candies were among the targeted businesses. The fliers were left in front of the businesses in a plastic bag with a contact card.

This isn't the first time McCord has been targeted. Last year we talked with owner Denise Bootsma who found fliers on her storefront. She's treating the situation just like she did last year.

“It's shocking, it's just pure hatred and we're not like that here so I don't know why they keep leaving that material here because we just throw it away,” said Bootsma.

Bootsma said she's confused why her store has been continuously targeted.

“They left information last summer about becoming a member, the same as this year and I’m not interested,” said Bootsma.

Operation Ink threw the flier away and Lafayette Brewing Company filed a police report. The Lafayette Police Department said it saddens them to see this strike the community again.

We've reached out to the city for surveillance video.
