Cory Mascari says he was out of town on June 3rd & 4th and his roommate was caring for his dog. Just before 1 a.m. on June 4th a window sensor detected movement at his home, and shortly after his roommate called the police to report the dog had been stolen. Several days later, his ex-girlfriend, 33-year-old Kelly Holmes took the dog to Value Vet and asked to his the dog’s records transferred. The staff contacted the victim, to whom the dog was registered over a decade ago, and has been the sole owner, who then contacted the police to provide an update. The veterinarian’s office provided a video of the woman with the dog, who was his ex-girlfriend, who had not had access to the dog since they broke up in July of 2021. With the clear ownership history of the dog, a warrant was issued for her arrest.
Kelly Holmes, of Forest Ridge Drive in Hermitage, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 1st, charged with theft. She is free on a $1,000 bond.
