SURFSIDE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Police in part of the Grand Strand are investigating after anti-Semitic propaganda was distributed in parts of town early Sunday.

The Surfside Beach Police Department said the propaganda was left sometime at around 2:30 a.m.

Officers spent the day removing it from yards and are “looking into the matter and gathering facts,” per a statement. The SSBPD also called the incident “shameful.”

The incident comes just over a month after Horry County police investigated anti-Semitic propaganda that was left in a Carolina Forest neighborhood.
