BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — While Boca Raton Police continue to investigate allegedly antisemitic leaflets placed in plastic bags and left in yards across the City of Boca Raton, State Attorney Dave Aronberg says there is little that law enforcement can truly do.

Taking to Twitter as news of the leafleting spreads, Aronberg says that charging anyone with a crime is challenging. Like it or not, it’s free speech.

“This is a particularly disgusting and cowardly act, but unfortunately under our criminal statutes it’s not a crime because of the First Amendment,” said Aronberg.

Several homes were targeted in Boca Raton over the weekend. Some of the alleged victims tell that a pickup truck was seen leaving the area of the leaflets were left. Some of the plastic bags contained unknown pellets, but officials say they were not dangerous.

The investigation continues. More coverage 6-10 a.m. on “South Florida’s First News with Andrew Colton” on NewsRadio610 WIOD. Listen live on the air, on the iHeart Radio App, or tell Alexa, Google, or Siri to play “NewsRadio 610 WIOD.”
