Jose Flores mugshot

Jose Flores

A local man was arrested June 13 in Leesburg in connection to more than 30 reports of destruction of property, according to the Leesburg Police Department.

Numerous residents in the 100 and 200 blocks of Meadows Lane NE in Leesburg have reportedly discovered damage to their vehicles over the past few months, including swastikas and “KKK” being carved into the sides, as well as punctured tires.

Following an investigation that involved community assistance, authorities identified and arrested Jose Flores, 59, of Leesburg, charging him with nine counts of destruction of property, according to the LPD.

Investigators believe Flores acted alone and that he is not associated with any hate groups, authorities said.

As of June 17, Flores was being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center without bond.

Maybe when you apologize for the name you called Northam, You're a a name calling republican but don't want people to call you names, double standard.

LetFreedomRing

Move along folks. Nothing to see here. He’s not white or a cop. This is the last we’ll hear about this racist. Racists who aren’t white or LEO’s aren’t supposed to be real.

amerigirl

Are you directing traffic? People can be racist and hateful no matter the color of their skin.

Does White Supremacy include Hispanics or are you being sarcastic? I'm starting to think it's everyone not Black. Crazy world

LL--Governor Northam, pursuant to Article V of the Constitution of Virginia cannot run for another term as Governor. So why would anybody be "carving Northam's campaign logo on cars?" Governor Northam hasn't even expressed any future interest in Virginia politics either. That premise is a stretch. Your last point about "racists come in all colors" is a true statement.

CindyLou

Voltaire.....Well that's what sets the fire with me....calling the Governor "#lackface" that's so horrible. He is trying to keep us all safe. Throw out the democrat and republican thing. He wants Virginia to stay safe. He like every other Governor probably is in mortal fear of their state turning into a New York and that's a possibility if we are not careful VMI should never have allowed that picture in the yearbook, that's on the school and I dressed up many times as a "#lack Mammie" for Halloween with my #lack friends. It disgusts me to see those posts here from grown adults that know darn well that VMI should control what goes in their yearbook. They thought it was ok, so the kids did it. VMI has had racial issues in the past. There is no evidence that the Governor is a racist because he dressed up like a black man either???? But we do know that Trump continuously sides with the ### and the White supremacy groups, over and over again. The #ryan Nation, supports Trump heavy and that's a fact.

amerigirl

Ace, that was it you should join her? Nonsensical.

Voltaire

CindyLou--I, like you, find that name calling done against the Governor of the Commonwealth is wrong. However, just because Donald Trump "supports" the viewpoints of white supremacy groups doesn't necessarily mean that he is an active due paying member of them.

ace10

Good grief. POTUS has condemned white supremacist groups. Fact.

With your incessant corrections of everyone, you've overlooked the plank in your own eye.

Voltaire

Ace10--whatever. The President has officially condemned white supremacist groups. However, neither you or I have evidence that states CONCLUSIVELY what he personally thinks on the topic and there my conclusion is still a valid premise. As to your "observation", maybe the incessant corrections are warranted since there appears a lot of basic concepts that need some clarification/correction.

amerigirl

I was never proven Northam was in the pic. Fact. Trumpster was pressured into making that statement about white supremacists, you know that. You have never corrected your statements about Northam.

ace10

When you're proven incorrect you immediately go into deflection mode. It's hilarious.

amerigirl

Commenting on your comment is not deflecting. Your hilarious.

Voltaire

Ace10--I haven't been proven incorrect. You do know there is a difference between official White House announcements and the President's own viewpoint as that of a private citizen? Unless you are a member of the Psychic Friends network, you have no idea what Donald Trump the person feels about this subject.

ace10

You chose to make a definitive statement regarding POTUS' support for such groups. You can wiggle all you want, but it is YOU who is incorrect. You didn't provide proof. I refuted your statement, so you have chosen to "move the goalposts."

Sorry but you haven't a leg upon which to stand.

Good grief, you try to portray yourself as some mighty intellectual authority, but really you're no different than anyone else.

See how fun this is?

CindyLou

ace10, awwww, can't take the truth can you? Another temper tantrum throwing radical Republican. The LTM and you radical right can allow and come on these posts and call liberals names and our Governor racist names, but you can't take it as usual. Calm down, the plank you have mistaken for a needle because I would rather stick a needle in my eye than look at that orange headed mentally ill terrorist idiot that thinks he's running this country. Anyone that supports him has serious issues.

amerigirl

Ace,Ace sounds like you are the one wiggling. You can provide your own proof don’t think that everyone is going to do your work for you. You never accept proof when it is given to you anyway you just pass the buck and call people liars. You also wouldn’t recognize intellect. People are quite capable of learning, I should say most people, and can look things up on their own. See how fun this is????? What is that even suppose to mean?? That you take pleasure in harassing others??

ace10

Go tell the teacher, if you feel like there's a micro-agression going on here.

You're a loser. You'll always be a loser. I'm certain this isn't the very first time you've learned this fact.

amerigirl

Wow ace it looks like you are breaking a record at getting posts deleted. Maybe try being nicer?

LongtimeLoudouner

Why is this even being made a political issue? Right or left, we should be equally glad the offender, who obviously has screwed up beliefs, was caught, no matter what his color or ethnic background is.

amerigirl

You will find that certain posteres, pual, hard working, ace, broof, etc they see everything as political and blame everything wrong on the left and call them names while doing it.

There have been people of color in the KKK before. You are intolerable with your racist remarks

Voltaire

CindyLou---Whoa there pilgrim. You can't make any of those statements stick. First, there is no evidence to show that Donald Trump is the Grand Dragon of KKK or a card carrying member of the Aryan Nation. That is a stretch to say the least. Also, the historical record conclusively shows that there were no republicans in the Confederate States of America (CSA). The CSA was composed of Democrats. The Republicans were in the North. As for the continued name calling of the Governor, I believe that is wrong.

CindyLou

Ha! You radical republican liberal hating Trump supporters would never be able to play poker. You just can't keep your cards hidden, you can't sit still in your seats or keep a poker face! It's hysterical!!! Mention the Governors name and you go crazy! Sorry to say, VMI is the one that allowed the picture, it's just an excuse for you liberal haters to attack a Democrat.

RoundHillRes

Funny how the leftist didn't seem to read or comment on this article, but someone makes a bad joke and it's clear that ALL of Loudoun suffers from systemic racism.

amerigirl

Guess you got that wrong. Bad joke? wow try a few, against blacks, Asians and assaulting a kid.

Chris McHale

He was charged with assault but not convicted. I'm surprised you would bring that up since you've often argued innocent until proven guilty.

amerigirl

Still happened.

Chris McHale

"It still happened" - So he's guilty until proven innocent? Isnt that what you rally against?

Voltaire

Chris McHale--there are a variety of factors that can effect the case when it is brought to trial and can influence the verdict. However, the fact that there was sufficient evidence for the Commonwealth to bring the case before a trial court for trial shows that there was something there and his behavior should not be condoned.

Chris McHale

Voltaire- so the fact that the prosecutor brought the case is enough for you? Perhaps the case was dropped because they learned the kid was lying, perhaps they learned that the kid was the aggressor and he was defending himself. We don't know, what we know is that he was not found guilty, therefore I don't assume he did it simply because he was charged.

Voltaire

Chris Mchale--no, but it means that the Commonwealth of Virginia had enough evidence to build a case for criminal assault that met the legal requirements for it to go to trial. If, as you claim, was nothing there, then the trial court would have summarily dismiss. However, there is controversy in that a family member of the presiding judge of this case donated to the Zurn campaign so your argument that the acquittal is "clean" doesn't hold water either. We will never know if Zurn should have been convicted. However, what it does is contribute to the behavior pattern that Roger Zurn has and continues to demonstrate and supports removal.

ace10

Nothing to see here, folks.

Move along.

The leftists would be posting by the hundreds if his last name was different and his complexion a bit lighter.

Wondering if this chap knows how to operate a photocopy machine?

Just curious...

amerigirl

Okay righty tighty, we are listening to you, NOT.I doubt there are even hundreds that post here, too bad you do. Do you really think people care what his last name is when he is doing this?

springerdad

Doh.

ChocolateDinosaur

My Soros Check bounced last week, can't be outraged until I get paid or until they turn on the 5G again to hijack our brains and activate the government nanobug vaccines. Hang tight broof, you're the only one who sees reality here.

Voltaire

ChocolateDinosaur--given that George Soros' net worth is currently approximately $8.3B, I don't think his check would bounce.

Thebroof

Democrats were up in arms calling it a hate crime. Where's that outrage mob now? They probably paid him to do it.

amerigirl

The broof needs proof. What do you do sit and wait for LTM to put out their news so you can comment and say that others aren't commenting? Get a life,

ace10

You're the one who opts to receive email updates for commentary. You said it yourself.

And then you proceed to post hundreds of nonsensical statements in every story each and every day.

Get a a life, indeed.
