Authorities: Clients of Loudoun pet-sitting service may have been victims of theft

Loudoun residents who used a Lovettsville-based dog-sitting service may have had items, including prescription medication, stolen from their homes, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities are seeking potential victims who used Christy’s Canine & Pet Care LLC dog-sitting service, according to a statement by the Sheriff’s Office.

The owner of the service, Christina L. Garrett-Gates, 38, was charged in July with larceny after a Lovettsville client reported that prescription medication had been stolen from the home while the client was out of town, authorities said.

Detectives have recently received additional information in the case and believe that there may be additional victims who are unaware that items may have been stolen from their residences, according to the statement.

Anyone who believes they may have been a victim is asked to contact Detective C. Staub of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-737-8757.
