BONITA SPRINGS, Fla .- A Neo-Nazi group is trying to lure new members in Southwest Florida.

Some 500 flyers from the Aryan Nations were passed out in Lee County last week. More than a dozen turned up in the front yards of several homes off Paradise Road on Sunday.

Residents say they were stunned to read the hate-filled messages and are upset they group would target their community. The neighborhood is near a Jewish center.

The Aryan Nations says its using the fliers as a recruitment tool.

The sheriff's office has not received any complaints and is not looking into the matter.
