Sheriff’s Office Seeks Potential Witnesses in Vandalism of Statue

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information from two potential witnesses who were in the area Aug. 17 after the Confederate statue on the Loudoun County Courthouse grounds in Leesburg was vandalized.

Surveillance video from the downtown Leesburg area shows two men walking in the area around the same time as the vandalism occurred. Detectives are asking for the two men or anyone who knows them to call 703-777-0475, LCSO officials said.

The statue was spray painted with graffiti that included obscene language after midnight on Aug. 17. Last week, detectives released surveillance video of two male suspects.

The graffiti was able to be removed and there was no permanent damage to the statue.
