McLean Police District– Detectives from our Organized Crime and Intelligence Bureau are investigating a bias incident that occurred on Sunday, Feb. 20. Officers were called to 1400 block of Laurel Hill Road, in the Wolf Trap area of Vienna, after a community member found a sealed plastic bag containing an anti-Semitic flyer weighted with corn kernels on his property.
