Two people are in custody and deputies are searching for a third after authorities say they littered a Lithia Springs neighborhood with antisemitic flyers.
The Jewish advocacy group StopAntisemitism has been tracking the activities of those responsible – the Goyim Defense League’ or ‘GDL’ for nearly five years and state they vilify Jews with their premeditated hate campaigns. Husband and wife duo – Phillip and Hillary Jacobs are notorious members of the hateful group.
Channel 2′s Berndt Petersen learned from investigators that the suspects were livestreaming on social media when putting the flyers in driveways. For now, Phillip and Hillary Jacobs are charged only with littering. Petersen drove through several subdivisions off of Skyview Drive on Friday morning and found the flyers in front of home after home. Douglas County deputies say they counted as many as 130 homes with antisemitic flyers.
Investigators say they were first made aware of the car tossing out the flyers on Thursday night which led them to the livestream video, which they shared with Petersen.
“We were able to positively identify the three people in the livestream inside the vehicle. We obtained warrants for misdemeanor littering. At this time, it’s strictly a littering case. We’re still going through the individual pieces of trash. It appears to be antisemitic in nature,” Major Matt Gray said.
They are still searching for the third person involved, and that person’s name has not been released.
