MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- Residents in Milford are getting an alert from police telling them about disturbing flyers found in driveways.
Pamphlets from a white supremacist group left in driveways in Milford and Orange are upsetting homeowners like Chester Ignatowski.
"I thought it was a bunch of baloney, that's what I thought," said Ignatowski, of Milford.
The leaflet bearing the logo of United Klans of America with 'Neighborhood Watch' in bold letters tells residents they can sleep well tonight knowing the UKA is awake.
News 8 showed it to Scott Esdaile, State President of the NAACP.
"We've dealt with the KKK and other white racists organizations for a while in that area," Esdaile, "they've been trying to establish a beach head for a while in this area."
Someone went to a lot of effort: they printed the pamphlet, placed it in a plastic bag and even weighed it down with rocks, so when it was tossed into the driveway it would stay put.
News 8 called the Alabama number on the pamphlet and the man who answered said he would call back.
"Can I call you back in a little while?"
The pamphlets were dropped in nice suburban neighborhoods. One right near a golf course that already boasts a neighborhood watch.
At age 89 Ignatowski remembers the civil rights movement and doesn't understand why his street was targeted.
"I don't know why they picked on this neighborhood," Ignatowsky said. "All the people in this neighborhood all get along well and help each other out."
Milford Police are examining if any laws were broken in distributing the flyers. They are also asking anyone who may have witnessed their delivery to give them a call.
