    Loudoun County Sheriff's deputies arrested three people in Round Hill as part of an ongoing investigation after prescription pads were stolen from a Lansdowne facility.

    John F. Couls, 34, of Ashburn, Susan A. Saffer, 51, of Round Hill, and Marina E. Quintanilla-Rodriguez, 24, of Leesburg, were taken into custody Friday.
    Couls was charged with obtaining narcotics by forgery. Saffer and Quintanilla-Rodriguez were charged with obtaining narcotics by forgery and conspiracy to obtain narcotics by forgery.

    Couls and Quintanilla-Rodriguez remain held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond. Saffer was released on a $10,000 secured bond.

    The arrests stem from an investigation into the theft of 15 prescription pads in February from Loudoun Internal Medicine. The prescriptions were passed to at least two pharmacies in Loudoun County for oxycodone. The pharmacies called authorities to the possible fraudulent prescriptions and assisted in the investigation, according to Liz Mills, spokesperson for the sheriff's office.

    The suspects are also believed to have passed fraudulent prescriptions in Winchester and Warrenton.

    Members of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Vice-Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant Friday at a home in the 20 block of Longstreet Avenue in Round Hill. Authorities did not say what they found during that search. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Rapid Response Unit and the Virginia State Police assisted with the search warrant.

    Mills said more charges are likely to be filed in this case.
