Calvert Sheriff Police Beat / A Noose is On the Loose at Gas Plant

COVE POINT, MD. — Calvert Sheriff Mike Evans reports that on December 07, 2016 at approximately noon, the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office was notified by a representative of Kiewit Construction that a noose had been located on the construction site at the Dominion Cove Point LNG facility in Lusby. This is the 5th such noose that has been found on this site.

The Sheriff’s Office was contacted immediately upon the noose being located. The noose was collected and placed into CCSO property for evidence.

A reward of $100,000 for information as to the instigator of the noose postings at the site is reportedly being offered by the company.

A reward of $100,000 for information as to the instigator of the noose postings at the site is reportedly being offered by the company. 

Photograph from Library of Congress taken in 1906 shows two African American men standing on gallows; one man is bound with noose around neck and the other stands next to him holding flowers; they are surrounded by four men, at least two of them Caucasian.

Kiewit construction is cooperating fully with CCSO detectives who are investigating these cases. Numerous CCSO resources have been deployed to assist with the investigation which is still ongoing.

 Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Detective Nicholas DeFelice @ 4105352800 or defelinb@co.cal.md.us.
