Loudoun County Employee Charged with Embezzlement


Loudoun County, VA (May 10, 2023) - The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) has charged Theresa A. Smith of Haymarket, VA, with two counts of embezzlement after an investigation into her work with the Loudoun County Department of Family Services (DFS).

Ms. Smith is charged with embezzling approximately $29,000 from the Child Subsidy Program during her employment with Loudoun County DFS as a Child Care Specialist. DFS alerted LCSO after an internal review discovered possible fraud. The LCSO investigation covered the period November 2021 through October 2022, and more than 550 hours were found to have been fraudulently billed to the County. 

Ms. Smith surrendered at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center today after being advised that warrants had been obtained for her arrest. She was released on an unsecured $5,000 bond.
