Police: Anti-Semitic Flyers Not a Threat

Several homeowners in the Reisterstown, Timonium and Pikesville areas received flyers with end of the world and anti-Semitic messages. Police say they don’t believe there is a credible threat.

Police say flyers with end-of-the-world and anti-Semitic messages that were placed in some Baltimore County homes’ driveways do not pose a threat.

“We have no additional intelligence to believe there are any known or distinct threats,” said police Capt. Matthew McElwee, commander of Baltimore County Police in Reisterstown.

Two Reisterstown homeowners reported to police they found the flyers on or about Jan. 10. Flyers were also found along the curbs of Division Avenue in Lutherville-Timonium on Jan. 10. A Pikesville homeowner on the 1300 block of Harden Lane found a flyer in his front yard around that same time. This literature has been distributed in the past in Baltimore County and other counties, McElwee said.

Nobody was spotted dropping the flyers off, but police are investigating where the flyers came from, McElwee said.

Lutherville-Timonium Patch Editor Nick DiMarco and Pikesville Patch Editor Janet Metzner contributed to this report.

It's a threat to all decency that anyone would do such a thing.
