Hate group stickers left at Clifton park
Stickers associated with a group calling itself the American Nazi Party have reportedly turned up recently at a Clifton park.
A Mesa County Sheriff’s Office incident report says a deputy responded Sunday on a report from a local man who’d removed an objectionable sticker from a sign at Long Family Memorial Park. The sticker was a promotion item for the National Socialist Freedom Movement, which is based in Oklahoma.
The group’s website claims 17 chapters in the United States and beyond.
“Internet sources indicate they were formed as a ‘legal’ organization,” a deputy wrote in an incident report. “It appears the sticker was placed as a way of attempting to recruit members.”
The man who called deputies said others had told him about more stickers recently turning up at the park.
The deputy said he walked around but couldn’t find any.
Maintenance workers located by law enforcement said they hadn’t seen any, according to the report.
“At this time, there are no criminal charges outside of possible littering to pursue,” the report said.
The case was closed Sunday.
