DANE COUNTY — White Supremacist fliers were found near homes in multiple towns in Dane County, according to Dane County Sheriffs and the Madison Police Department.

The fliers were found in Madison, Blooming Grove, Cottage Grove, and Albion, according to officials.

A Cottage Grove resident found the flier on Monday and reported it to authorities.

Madison police gave the fliers to the Wisconsin Department of Justice's Statewide Intelligence Center, and the organization told Madison police that the letter did not have a threat or indicate criminal behavior.

Depending on who received the flier and how they interpreted it, it could be considered a threat, the Madison police department said. In that case you are to contact authorities as soon as you can.
