Suffolk police say they're investigating stickers with hateful messages found in Bay Shore.
The stickers, which have pictures of swastikas and the Ku Klux Klan, have been placed all over town, including on a sign near Casamento Park, outside of a restaurant, on signs on Bay Shore Road, on a 7-Eleven, road signs and crosswalks.
The hateful stickers have also been found on residential streets like Reilly Street. Police say they've been notified and detectives from the Hateful Crimes Unit are investigating.
About two years ago, white supremacist recruitment flyers were also found in the community.
Some of the stickers have been ripped down.
Residents told News 12 that the stickers were upsetting, and urged the town to replace the affected signs. The town says it will be addressing the signs once authorities finish their investigation.
