Today, Saturday May 4, 2013, the Portland Police Bureau was alerted to several instances of a fraudulent letter that was distributed overnight in the Ladd's Addition neighborhood of Southeast Portland.

The letters make reference to "discriminatory and technically illegal" Bible passages from 1 Corinthians and ask that police be contacted about local pastors using the passages.

The letters are fraudulent and were not authored by or distributed by the Portland Police Bureau nor would the Police Bureau ever send letters of this nature to anyone.

Copies of the letter are not being released at this time due to the ongoing investigation.

Anyone with received one of these letters or who has information on who authored or distributed the letters is asked to contact Detective Eric McDaniel by email, Eric.McDaniel@PortlandOregon.gov, reference Portland Police Bureau Case Number 13-35732.
