LA CROSSE, Wis. -

If you've received an unusual text message recently, you're not alone. La Crosse Police have received more than 50 complaints.

The first reads: "I'm not sure if it's connected or not, but I've heard there's been an influx of Lax Police selling Heroin, don't tell anyone shhhh."

The second says: "In protest of the Muslims disrespecting and burning the American flag, join us to burn a Koran and their flags!" The text then details a date, time and location in La Crosse.

The number appears to be based out of Florida. Police are aware of the texts and are investigating.
