(Roslyn) -- Police in suburban Philadelphia say racist flyers were found on several homes.

WPVI-TV reports white supremacist flyers were discovered in Abington Wednesday. The letters encourage people to join the Ku Klux Klan and describe "white pride."

Community members say the flyers are disturbing.

Abington Police Chief Patrick Molloy says there's video that indicates the person who distributed the flyers may be a "young person on a bicycle." Molloy says there were similar incidents in other parts of Montgomery County.

An investigation is ongoing.
