Anti-Semitic fliers appeared on dozens of front lawns this week in heavily Jewish neighborhoods, Los Angeles police said Wednesday. About 20 residents near Chandler Boulevard and Coldwater Canyon Avenue have turned fliers over to police, although many people may have just thrown them away, Det. Ted Knott said. A white supremacist group claimed authorship of the fliers. Police are investigating the distribution of the fliers as a hate incident, Knott said.
