Pornographic Photos, DVD Strewn Across Southington Streets

Police in Southington are investigating after someone scattered nearly two dozen pornographic photos and a DVD around city streets earlier this month.

Southington police said someone left 20 magazine photos and one DVD at 19 different locations around town, including near a school and at a bus stop. Residents complained of pornographic images on their lawns and streets May 5.

"It's a little disturbing, disheartening. I grew up in this town, and it's always been a relatively low-key town, small town, no problems like this, nothing graphic like this being show, especially around kids, especially around here," said Southington resident Kevin Pistilli.

The following areas have been affected:

  • Stonegate Road - two photos
  • Crest Road - two photos
  • Fairway Drive - two photos
  • Arlington Drive - one photo
  • Spring Lake Road - three photos
  • Flanders Road - 3 photos
  • Cathy Drive - one photo
  • Celella Drive - one photo
  • Bruce Avenue - one photo
  • Bridle Path Drive - one photo and one DVD
  • High Ridge Road - one photo

"Children shouldn't be exposed to this kind of stuff," said Pistilli. "No matter how you put it, it's kind of unacceptable."

Southington police are investigating the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call the police department at 860-621-0101 or submit an anonymous tip by calling 860-276-1234.
