The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is seeking potential additional victims as part of its investigation of contractor fraud case.

He operated Pro + Design, which was previously named Pro Home Remodeling. Several victims have been identified and detectives are working to determine whether there are others.
Anyone who entered into a contract with Ashford or his companies and believes they were victims is asked to contact Detective Roy Ortutay email@example.com 571-258-3375.
