WESTON, Conn. — Weston Police are seeking information on a suspicious vehicle that may be connected to the distribution of 30 white supremacist fliers that were found early Monday morning in various places around Route 53, police said.

Weston Detective Chris Powers said police received a phone call about the suspicious vehicle at about 1:30 a.m. Monday. When the officer responded, no vehicle was found but the officer noticed the fliers, Powers said. In all, 30 fliers were collected from the ends of driveways in the area, he said.

"We're asking that anyone who has information to contact" Weston police at 203-222-2600, he said.

He said Weston police notified Wilton Police because the area was close to the Wilton border. Wilton Police found three of the fliers in that town. Norwalk Police discovered five in the Newtown Avenue/Route 53 area later on Monday morning.

Playing on President Donald Trump's campaign theme of "Make America Great Again" the flyers called to "Make America White Again." The flyers, which were placed in a clear plastic sleeve, said the white race's existence and the future of white children must be secured.

It also printed the website address of a website run by Mike Enoch, who the Southern Poverty Law Center characterizes as an “alt-right” extremist. Alt-right is a term that describes the white nationalist movement. The website says, “We’re white and we’re not sorry.”
