The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is hoping the public can help identify two potential witnesses who were in the area at the time the Confederate war memorial on Loudoun County Courthouse grounds was vandalized Aug. 17.
Surveillance video from the downtown Leesburg area shows two men walking on North King Street across from the courthouse. Detectives are asking the men, or anyone who knows them, to contact LCSO at 703-777-0475.
The memorial was spray painted with graffiti that included obscene language after midnight Aug. 17. The graffiti was removed later that morning and there was no permanent damage. Last week, detectives released surveillance video of two suspects who appear to be light skinned males. The video can be viewed at sheriff.loudoun.gov/statue.
Anyone with information regarding the vandalism case is asked to contact 703-777-0475. Tips may also be submitted through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app,
