    Police are investigating after racist graffiti was found spray painted on a building in Fairfield over the weekend.

    Someone called police Sunday to report finding a swastika, KKK and the phrase "white lives matter" painted on the side of a vacant building at 1280 Stratfield Road.

    Police said people have a right to express thoughts, but they become concerned when it becomes a threat to an individual or group. Authorities will continue to monitor the situation, according to Lt. James Perez, of the Fairfield Police Department.

    This is the third racial incident in Fairfield in recent months.

    In early may, leaflets reading "White Lives Matter" were delivered to several homes in town. Similar fliers were found in Westport, Milford and East Haven.

    In March, police found a sign reading "Obama Stinks" nailed to a telephone pole along with two dead skunks.
