"I mean. just walking around the block, I could go this way or that way and see a couple now and then," said Deb Milewski, who lives in town.

Our Fox CT crew found one photo just feet from an elementary school.

Neighbors say they're stunned. " I will have to have to have a conversation with my 11-year-old, 12-year-old, and a toned down one for my 8-year-old," said Melanie Hanner, who lives in one of the affected neighborhoods. "You don't expect to have that kind of conversation there are so many other things to have to worry about."

"I lived here for many years and I've gone to this school and it's disgusting," remarked Kevin Pistilli.

If you have any information or witnessed one of the drops, please call Southington Police at 860-276-1234. All calls may remain anonymous.
