Sheriff’s Office Recommends Vigilance Amid Mall Attack Threat

With reports circling around Northern Virginia warning of a credible terrorist threat to malls or shopping centers this weekend, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is collaborating with local, state, and federal agencies, but says there is no information specific to Loudoun County.

During a press conference Friday afternoon, Fairfax County Chief of Police Kevin Davis addressed information provided to area law enforcement agencies Thursday concerning potential public safety impacts to malls and shopping centers across the region. He said his department would increase the police presence throughout the county—on major thoroughfares and at transit hubs, shopping plazas, and shopping malls.

While acknowledging the alert, Sheriff’s Office said there is nothing specific to Loudoun County. “As we work to corroborate the information with our local, state, and federal partners in the National Capital Region, the LCSO will increase patrols this weekend in high visibility locations to include shopping centers, malls, and other commercial establishments,” the agency said in a statement.

The agency urged residents to remain vigilant and to immediately report any suspicious activity by calling the Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1021 or dialing 911.

    Open Southern border.
    Chaotic Afghanistan exit.
    Nonstop denigration of Law Enforcement and Border Patrol.

    You can thank the (D)s for this.

    A big howdy and how y’all to all the ISIS members in northern Virginia. We hope you had an enjoyable trip. Since you are here, be sure to collect the goody bag prepared for you by America’s democrats.

    There’s free food, free housing, spending money, free school for your kids and your future kids (even those who are a product of your rapes), and a job if you are dumb enough to think you have to work. Please enjoy all that this country has to offer and if you decide to blow up places where we like to shop, be our guest, we won’t mind.

    I’m sorry President Biden isn’t here to greet you but he forgot you were coming.

    The eyes of the nation are on Loudoun County. So many inflammatory articles have been written about this well-meaning community! I pray that everything settles down in due time. The world won’t come to an end due to Policy 8040. Justice must be served for the victim of the grotesque rape on LCPS property. Any other sexual assaults on LCPS property must be vigorously prosecuted. Meanwhile, I urge everyone to tone down the rhetoric. And please vote Loudoun!

    Too bad the Feds are tasked with intimidating parents at SB meetings, while real deal terrorists are making us jump through hoops.
