1 min read

WATERBURY — Police are investigating graffiti they say came from a white supremacist hate group painted on the side of a dam in Waterbury yesterday.

According to the report, the graffiti was discovered by a worker at the dam this week and reported to the state police barracks in Middlesex.

The graffiti was painted on the east side of the dam, a location that has little visibility to the public and is not viewable from the water.

Police say the graffiti was identified as coming from the hate group Patriot Front and was applied using a stencil, allowing the offender to apply the images quickly and then leave, police say.

There is no video of the site on the dam where the graffiti was applied, and there are no known witnesses or suspects.

The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources had removed the graffiti by yesterday afternoon.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the police in Middlesex at 802-229-9191.
