In the statement, APD said their Homeland Security Unit was quickly notified and they area currently investigating.

This comes just a little over two months after a number of Sandy Springs residents received antisemitic literature overnight, including Ga. House Rep. Esther Panitch. The Sandy Springs defense attorney said she woke up with literature inside Ziplock bags that also included kernels of corn.

“Welcome to being a Jew in Georgia,” she said in the Tweet. “Govern yourselves accordingly, GDL and Antisemites who seek to harm/intimidate Jews in Georgia. I’m coming for you with the weight of the State behind me.”
