On Wednesday June 9 at 8:20 AM, Sergeant Mahoney and Patrolman Kelly responded to the area of Main Street and Talmadge Avenue to investigate a complaint of offensive literature found scattered along the sidewalk. A person who had been walking on the sidewalk found several pieces of paper on the ground with the words 'Kill Jews' written on them with black magic marker. The officers walked the street from 1 Main Street to Passaic Avenue and collected a total of 35 pieces of paper with the same writing. They were unable to locate any suspects and it is unknown how long the pieces of paper were on the sidewalk. The following day additional pieces of paper were found on Fairmount Avenue with the same writing on them.
The Morris County Prosecutor's Office was notified and is assisting in this investigation. Summit and Millburn Police reported similar incidents in the past. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Chatham Borough Police Department at (973) 635-8000.
