PLACER COUNTY, Calif. – A dog that was reported stolen in January has been found and returned to its loving owners.

The Labradoodle, Lucy was reported stolen on Jan. 16. Deputies said the victim told deputies that a woman identified as 33-year-old Karla Guthrie had taken Lucy.

Lucy was more than a family pet, she was an emotional support animal too.

A deputy with the Placer County Sheriff’s Office began investigating the case and found evidence that proved Guthrie stole Lucy the dog.

Deputies said Guthrie was arrested on Jan. 24. However, Guthrie was released after attending her initial court hearing.

A week later, deputies found Lucy the dog at a home in Lake of the Pines, in Nevada County. The home was known to be a frequent location that Guthrie would visit.

Lucy was found with Guthrie, who was also found to be in possession of thousands of dollars in stolen property from an elderly resident in the neighborhood.

Guthrie was arrested for violating the terms of her release from jail. Deputies said she was released on bond a second time, arrested again for a third time several days later for stolen property.

Placer County Sheriff’s Office said in part, “We want to thank the Good Samaritans and the Lake of the Pines Department of Public Safety, for the instrumental role they played in recovering and reuniting Lucy with her family!”
