UPDATED: Police, school officials seeking vandals of iconic llama artwork

Fairfax County police are asking the public to help them identify those who destroyed a concrete statue of three llamas at the Potomac School in McLean between dusk on Dec. 21 and 5 a.m. on Dec. 22 last year.

 Vandals broke off the heads of all three llamas, left two of the heads on the school grounds and stole the third, school officials said.

The statue, donated by artist Una Rawnsley Hanbury, depicts three llamas standing in a circle. The artwork has been on the private school’s grounds since 1970, first as a climbing structure on a playground and then as a landscaping feature on the front of the campus following the school’s major renovations in the early 2000s, school leaders said.

The statue “really is a beloved icon for our community – something that generations of Potomac students remember,” Marjorie Brennan, chair of the school’s Board of Trustees, said in a Jan.

Montgomery County school employee charged in child-porn case …

A Maryland man who based his career on his love of children — working with them in schools, camps and church; writing books and lesson plans for them; reviewing television shows and making videos for them — was arrested Friday on charges that he possessed and distributed child pornography.

Sean Kelley, 30, was caring for children in at least three paid positions last year — in Montgomery County public elementary schools and a Burtonsville church — when he became the subject of a pornography investigation.

School and church officials say the children in the sexually explicit images that Kelley downloaded and distributed were neither Montgomery students nor members of the church.

Still, the arrest of a man who worked with children for more than a decade sent waves of alarm through his school and faith communities.

“These charges are extremely upsetting and distressing,” Cloverly Elementary School Principal Melissa Brunson wrote in a letter
