A co-director of A Better Life Dog Rescue has pleaded guilty to two counts of theft involving a number of dogs that have gone missing in the Lower Mainland.

Louise Mary Alice Reid entered the pleas on Thursday, July 26 in Surrey Provincial Court, according to court documents. She admitted to two offences that occurred last year, one in Surrey on March 1 and the other in Coquitlam on Nov. 21.

Reid was one of six people charged in a rash of dog thefts throughout Metro Vancouver.

Last November, charges were announced against Janet Olson, founder of A Better Life Dog Rescue, Michaela Schnittker, along with Reid, Christine Carter, Diane Young Hale and Natalia Borojevic.

Olson faces 36 charges ranging from theft and fraud to break-and-enter in connection with alleged offences across the Lower Mainland dating back to 2006. The allegations have not been proven in court.

Sentencing for Reid is scheduled for Sept. 7.
