The West Fargo Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the individual, or individuals, responsible for distributing racially divisive materials throughout West Fargo neighborhoods. 

The West Fargo Police Department received reports of racially divisive materials littered throughout streets and private properties from 40th Avenue W. to 52nd Avenue W., west of Sheyenne Street. Hundreds of small bags were strewn throughout the neighborhoods containing a postcard with language relating to a recent local court case.

Residents are asked to review their security footage and report any suspicious activity in relation to this incident to the West Fargo Police Department by calling 701-515-5500.
