WALLINGFORD — Police removed a mannequin dressed in a Ku Klux Klan outfit from the roof of a vacant building located off George Street on Saturday morning.

A passerby called police about 7:25 a.m. Saturday to report the mannequin, which was on the roof of a vacant building behind 8 George St., according to police.

The mannequin was dressed in a full KKK outfit, including white robe and hood, and positioned in a Nazi-like salute, Bradley said. The officers made contact with the property owner, who said they weren’t aware of the mannequin and gave police permission to remove it, Lt. Cheryl Bradley said.

No arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to call the police department at 203-294-2800.

According to the town assessor’s office, the property is owned by DEV Enterprises, LLC, which has a business address in West Haven. The principal of the business is Niraj Manandhar. The building is listed as “vacant” by the town.

George Street is located off South Cherry Street.
