3 le persone vengono accusate dopo che la polizia ha affermato che opuscoli con simboli di odio sono stati collocati nei luoghi di culto della città di New York

Decine di opuscoli con simboli di odio sono stati lasciati in una chiesa e in una sinagoga, nonché in altre aree di Hornell, New York, durante il fine settimana, and three people have been arrested and charged with first-degree aggravated harassment, ha detto la polizia.

Aubrey Dragonetti, 31, Dylan Henry, 30, and Ryan Mulhollen, 27, each faces 115 counts of the felony chargeone for each pamphlet that was allegedly placed in the community, Hornell Police Chief T.J. Murray told CNN.
      The pamphlets and stickers contained the wordsAryan National Armyand included an image of a skull inside a swastika, Ha detto Murray. He added that authorities were alerted after a churchgoer attended a morning service and found one posted on the door of a church with a predominantly Black congregation.
        Then we went to a local park and within that park we ended up finding them scattered throughout the park and posted on different areas,” Ha detto Murray. “Our patrols ended up intercepting the two males that were arrested as they were dispersing these items throughout the community.
          The suspects made statements to authorities, Ha detto Murray, but he declined to provide details on what was said.
          Murray told CNN he doesn’t believe there’s any active threat against the church or synagogue at this time and has offered the houses of worship extra security.
          The police chief said he believed the three suspectswere all acting collectivelyto distribute the pamphlets. CNN could not determine whether they have legal representation but has reached out to the suspects for comment.
          Hornell Mayor John Buckley told CNN he wasshocked and appalledby the distribution of hate symbols in the community, which he describes as an old railroad town that swells with visitors during the summer months and winter holidays. Hornell is roughly 85 miles southeast of downtown Buffalo.
            It’s not reflective of who we are as a community here in Hornell,” Buckley said. “Hornell is a very warm, welcoming and accepting community and there’s no room for any hate whatsoever.
            CNN has reached out to the local district attorney for comment about the case.
