KKK Fliers are Located Across Loudoun Communities

Loudoun County- The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) and the Leesburg Police Department (LPD) are working together to investigate the origins of Ku Klux Klan (KKK) recruitment fliers found by Loudoun residents this morning.


This morning, Leesburg Police responded to reports of KKK materials located in a plastic baggies in front of a business within the town limits. 


Shortly after 6:46 a.m. this morning, the LCSO was notified that KKK propaganda fliers were located in the front yard of homes in the area of the 1600 Block of N. Amelia Avenue in Sterling.


LCSO deputies canvassed the area and located eighteen more fliers on several lawns on N. Amelia Avenue and five fliers on lawns of residences on N. Alder Avenue.


All of the fliers were placed in plastic bags containing birdseed. There is no indication any of the households who received the fliers were targeted. Some fliers were similar to previously reported incidents earlier this year.


Anyone with any information regarding these cases or with possible surveillance video, are asked to contact Detective R. Reed at 703-777-1021. You may also submit a tip through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app. The Loudoun Sheriff app is available on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
