Additional Leesburg resident finds KKK literature

Yet another Leesburg resident has found a baggie with Ku Klux Klan literature at their home.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office received a report Thursday from a resident at the 1500 block of Limestone School Road after the resident found the plastic bag with a chocolate bar and several pages of KKK materials in their mailbox, LCSO Media Relations Manager Kraig Troxell said.

Troxell said the family did not believe they were targeted, and LCSO also had no reason to suspect targeting.

Thursday's incident comes just days after several historic downtown Leesburg residents woke up Sunday to KKK literature outside their mailboxes and driveways. The Leesburg Police Department handled the cases from earlier this week. Spokesman Sam Shenouda said LPD responded to two calls about the incident and reviewed the material to make sure it was not specifically targeting or threatening a neighbor.

Shenouda said responding officers determined the packets to be general KKK propaganda, and the department notified its federal partners about the existence of the materials.
