An Erie County grand jury indicted a Sandusky woman last week for a 2013 incident in which she stole her vehicle back from a repo man, then struck him with it as she drove away.
Deborah Lash, 50, of the 1500 block of Roosevelt St., was indicted on charges of felonious assault, tampering with evidence, vandalism and grand theft.
In late September, a repo man located Lash’s 2011 Toyota in a Lawrence Street driveway and hoisted it onto his truck. Lash emerged from a home and entered her vehicle, damaging the truck by backing her Toyota off its “boom,” according to a Sandusky police report.
“Move your truck,” was all Lash said to the repo man before backing into his truck repeatedly, the report said. While the man tried to reach police, Lash hopped into his tow truck, moved it out of the way, then got back into her Toyota.
As she pulled out of the driveway, Lash allegedly backed into the man, knocking him to the ground. When police later made contact with Lash, she said she wanted to file charges against the man.
Lash was charged with tampering with evidence because she removed the vehicle from the scene and later refused to tell officers of its whereabouts. She was charged with grand theft because the man had a repossession order and had already loaded the car onto his truck.
