Montgomery County Police were called to the 18900 block of Mills Choice Road about 9:10 a.m. Thursday, in response to a noose hanging from a tree. A resident found the noose around 8:00 a.m. near a parking lot at the Heron’s Cove Condominium neighborhood.
The noose, constructed from synthetic materials, was removed by the responding police officer, police said.
Police said there was no indication the noose was directed toward a particular person, according to the statement.
Several nooses have been discovered in the Washington area over the past few weeks. Last month, a noose was found inside the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington D.C.
