Chico, CA – Antisemitic flyers have been found in neighborhoods in the north end of Chico and east side of Redding Saturday night, according to police.
The Chico Police Department said the first call came in from the 1000 block of Normal Avenue. Follow-up calls came from neighborhoods in the 800 block of Westmont Drive and others off of East Eaton Rd.
Chico police said the flyers are consistent with those found in the area in the past. These flyers did not make threats, but made offensive statements.
CPD also said that they recognize this as a First Amendment issue and believe that there is no room for hate speech. They are taking this as a potential indicator of violence.
