Bomb threats were called and emailed in to the Loudoun County Republican Committee’s Victory Office in Sterling this morning, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.
Just before 9 a.m., the campaign office staff received a phone call from a person threatening to bomb the building at 42 Pidgeon Hill Drive. They later received an email with a similar threat, according to Kraig Troxell, sheriff’s office public information officer.
Troxell said the threat was not very specific.
“We searched the area and found nothing suspicious,” he said.
This is the second time in just more than a week that someone reportedly made threats to the Republican campaign headquarters. Last Sunday, the sheriff’s office received a report that someone overheard another person talking about vandalizing the office. The sheriff’s office has since focused more resources in the area near the Republican campaign headquarters.
“In an abundance in caution we’ve been doing directive patrols in that area,” Troxell said.
