(Updated at 6:25 p.m.) A Florida man arrested in McLean yesterday (Tuesday) had guns in his car and was allegedly on his way to the CIA, Fairfax County police say.
The man was reported for trespassing at the Immanuel Presbyterian Church (1125 Savile Lane) around 11:11 a.m. The church is also the site of Dolley Madison Preschool and the Speech and Language Center of Northern Virginia.
“He’s acting strange. Caller approached, and subject stated he was going to walk his dog and he headed toward the CIA building,” a dispatcher said, according to scanner traffic on Open MHz.
The Fairfax County Police Department says that the man wasn’t armed when officers found him, but two guns, including an AK-47, were found in his car.
The 32-year-old man from Florida has been detained and charged with felony possession of a firearm on school property, according to the FCPD.
“We appreciate Fairfax County Police’s diligence in addressing this threat, and we will continue to cooperate with them to ensure the security and safety of our personnel and our facility,” a CIA spokesperson said.
The man was detained & search warrant executed on his vehicle. Two firearms (pictured) were recovered from the car. Eric Sandow, 32, of Florida was charged with felony possession of a firearm on school property. #FCPD

VHC Health hosted its annual Trauma Survivors Day, honoring four former trauma patients and their care team on Tuesday, May 16. For many of these patient honorees, this event was the first time they were reunited with the team of healthcare professionals who cared for them after their injury. Both the healthcare team and the honorees expressed gratitude for the opportunity to thank, hug, and simply see one another again after their experience in the Trauma Center.
In May of 2021, the Commonwealth of Virginia designated VHC Health as a Level II Trauma Center.
