SOUTHINGTON – Police are investigating the discovery of “racial” fliers being placed in neighborhoods in town.

A resident found a flier attached to a stop sign on Brentwood Drive at the intersection of Mt. Vernon Road Saturday and brought it to police, Lt. Stephen Elliot said.

The flyer showed an image of Abraham Lincoln and was titled “We Founded this Nation,” Elliott said. Police didn’t specify is any other words were on the flyer. The investigating officer also found two other similar fliers in the area. The fliers have a “White Whalers Book Club” insignia on them but an Internet search did not provide any information on such a group, Elliott said

Police are looking for information on the fliers and who may have posted them. Anyone with information is asked to call the Southington Police Department at 860-621-0101.
