Detectives from the Fairfax County Police Department’s Organized Crime and Intelligence Bureau are investigating a bias incident that occurred Feb. 20.
Police dispatched officers to 1400 block of Laurel Hill Road in the Wolf Trap area north of Vienna after a community member found a sealed plastic bag containing an anti-Semitic flier weighted with corn kernels on his property.
Before officers arrived, the resident found an additional 70 to 80 fliers throughout the neighborhood, police said. Officers collected several of the fliers for evidentiary processing. Detectives are working to determine the origin of these fliers, and police have increased patrols as a precaution.
County police are working with the Anti-Defamation League and Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington to ensure the community is aware of the fliers.
