The Alexander County Sheriffs is investigating some possible Klan activity.
Sheriff Chris Bowman says a number of complaints have been received concerning some possible Ku Klux Klan solicitations in the Hiddenite area. Bowman says his office has been informed by “around 10 residents having some possible Klan material showing up in driveways and lawns” and he has some of the material. The fliers even have a phone number to the so called “Klan Hotline” included.
Bowman said this morning “It might have been 20 years or so since something like this as far as I can remember” when asked about the possibility of the Klan being active locally. The Sheriff went on to say that his office is “taking this very seriously and are encouraging citizens to come forward if they are contacted by anyone claiming to represent the Klan.”
