NAUGATUCK — Police say it appears nothing was stolen during a recent break-in at an industrial company on General Pulaski Way, but the suspect or suspects left their mark inside the building.

Police responded to a reported burglary Monday at Culox Technologies, 178 General Pulaski Way. The suspect or suspects forced their way into the building, possibly through a window, said Deputy Chief C. Colin McAllister.

It’s unclear when the break-in occurred, but police believe it happened while the company was closed for several days.

McAllister said it appears nothing was stolen during the burglary, but the building was vandalized twice with spray paint. The company sells pure and alloyed metal powders and particulates used in circuit boards, as well as in the automotive and petrochemical industry, according to its website.

Photos released by police show what appear to be the same four symbols, including what looks like a pitchfork, spray painted in white paint on a door and wall in the building. It’s unclear what, if anything, the graffiti means. McAllister said police hope that releasing pictures of the graffiti to the public will help officers identify its meaning.

McAllister said police aren’t aware of any other sites in the borough that have been tagged with similar graffiti. He encouraged the public to contact police if they have seen similar vandalism at any other locations.

Police asked anyone with information to call the Naugatuck Police Department at 203-729-5221 or the department’s confidential tip line at 203-720-1010.
