Residents in a small central Illinois village were targeted with unsolicited Ku Klux Klan recruitment materials that were thrown in their yards earlier this week.

The Dalzell Police Department posted a picture of the KKK's message, which includes the words, "Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan Wants You To Join," along with information about a website and radio show. The recruitment materials appear to have been delivered inside a plastic bag weighed down with rocks.

Dalzell Police added that residents of neighboring towns also saw the bags in their yards. The Dalzell Police Department asked anyone who found the recruitment materials in their yards to contact the authorities.

If you see something like this in your yard, contact local law enforcement agencies.
