Woman charged with taking ex’s car

LORAIN — A woman who spent time at the home of a man she had dated wound up charged by police after she took his car without permission, police said.

Donna Dellinger, 41, of Elyria Township, was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle after Sheffield police pulled her over about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday driving a car that matched the description of a 1996 Geo taken from the man’s garage, Lorain police reports said.

A 63-year-old Root Road resident told police he went fishing Sunday after agreeing to let Dellinger stay at his house while he was gone.

When he returned Monday the man found his garage open and car gone, in addition to a necklace, wedding ring and credit cards.
