Brighton Police are investigating after three hate message stickers were posted in the town.
The stickers were left in a restaurant bathroom, at the Brighton Town Hall, and on private property.
One appears to show Adolf Hitler, another read 'It's okay to be white' and a third said 'Identity Evropa'. To clarify, Identity Evropa is an American neo-Nazi and white supremacist organization. It was established in March of 2016.
"Regardless of the nature of the activity, the hateful activity, we have been involved. We have been very clear that it does not reflect us as a community, it is simply unacceptable," said Bill Moehle, Brighton supervisor.
Police call the case a suspicious incident and are looking for the person's identity.
If the situation elevates, Brighton's police chief says it could be a hate crime case. While Brighton's police chief didn't connect the case to a swastika found on the Nazareth College campus last week, he says it's possible that the cases are related.
