Please Be Aware
White supremacist Hardy Lloyd was arrested without incident by the FBI on August 10, 2023 in Follansbee, West Virginia for witness tampering in the synagogue shooter trial, obstruction, and threatening communications. He was detained pending a detention hearing on Tuesday, August 15, 2023 in the Northern District of West Virginia. We are grateful to the United States Attorney’s Office, law enforcement, and Security Community Network (SCN) for our collaborative effort in bringing Lloyd to justice. The investigation spanned for months and required constant efforts to mitigate potential threats. Most importantly, we are grateful for the relentless efforts of the community in assisting us by reporting Lloyd’s conduct to us.
The state PCCD security grant is likely to open next week with a deadline on or before Sept 30, 2023. Please contact Erin Fagan immediately if you would like assistance in applying for this grant at email@example.com.
