LAKE BUTLER, Fla. -- Ku Klux Klan flyers wrapped in plastic along with a few pieces of candy are surfacing in people's front yards in a rural Union County community.

Union County Sheriff Brad Whitehead says the literature was tossed in the middle of the night. The Sheriff's Office fielded a handful of complaints.

"It does surprise me...because I would not think something like that happens in a small town," said Libby Parrish who works at Skips Deli.

The sheriff says the FBI has been notified about the flyers.

"We are a very close knit community and we just won't tolerate this kind of stuff in our community. We don't like it, no one likes it," said Whitehead.
