(CBS) MILFORD, Conn. - The group United Klans of America (UKA), a part of the Ku Klux Klan, has been leaving a note on the driveways of Milford residents, which reads:
"NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH: You can sleep well tonight knowing the UKA is awake!"
CBS affiliate WFSB reports the note is delivered in a plastic bag weighed down with rocks. The station says the note contains a phone number with an Alabama area code and a website for the UKA.
Officials reportedly said this is the first time police in the coastal Connecticut town have had to deal with KKK activity.
WFSB reports that Milford police cannot classify the activity as a hate crime because the note is touting a neighborhood watch program and not targeting a specific group of people.
Police are looking for help from the community to figure out where the notes came from and who has been throwing them on the driveways, according to the station.
