MILFORD - The Connecticut NAACP is asking the Justice Department to investigate fliers left at Milford homes announcing a neighborhood crime watch by the Ku Klux Klan.

Police say letters from the United Klans of America were found in driveways on several streets. According to authorities, the letters read "you can sleep well tonight knowing the U.K.A. is awake."

The Southern Poverty Law Center says the group disbanded years ago, and the current U.K.A. is a year old and regarded as something of a joke.

Residents say they were shocked by the fliers.

Police say they oversee a neighborhood watch that has no connection to the KKK, and the KKK neighborhood watch mentioned in the flier is not legitimate.
