SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Five men were issued criminal trespass warnings Sunday after having posted dozens of unauthorized fliers and banners on the Texas State University campus.

Campus police said none of the men attended the university and were detained at the San Jacinto parking garage where they had gathered after posting several handbills near the Music Building and along the Quad.

When police confronted them, the men acknowledged they posted the fliers and had some with them while speaking to officers.

Texas State University police say the trespass warnings enable its officers to issue the men criminal trespass citations if they return to campus. Notifying the university community of the Sunday night incident in a Facebook post Monday, campus police did not specify what the fliers said or if they were related to white supremacy fliers posted on campus in October.

Last year, the university had to remove fliers that were calling for people to report undocumented immigrants.

University police have increased foot patrols on campus over the last 13 months in an effort to make the area safer.
