FISHERS, Ind. -- Fishers police say they can't do anything about the Ku Klux Klan fliers left in the yards of dozens of homes over the weekend.

The fliers were each stuffed inside a plastic bag with a rock inside to hold them down.

They criticized minority groups, immigrants, and gays and lesbians, and asked residents to join the KKK.

Police say at least three residents called to complain, but they say since no threats were made, no crime was committed.

This isn't the first time Central Indiana residents have found themselves targeted by KKK literature.

In July 2012, hundreds of Beech Grove residents woke up to find fliers from the KKK strewn across their own lawns.

The fliers declared it a "dark time for America." They were also placed in plastic bags with rocks inside to hold them down.

Both this week's fliers and those found in 2012 claimed to be from a group called the United and Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
