A Delaware County Grand Jury issued a series of indictments Friday, including a pair of women who are accused of breaking into vehicles.

Cheryl Klinger, 36, of Westerville, and Lily Jendrzejak, 22, of Columbus, were indicted Friday and charged with two counts of theft, fifth-degree felonies, and three counts of breaking and entering, fifth-degree felonies.

“Initially law enforcement responded to a call that a wallet had been stolen out of a vehicle parked in a private driveway in Lewis Center,” said Delaware County Prosecutor Carol O’Brien Friday. “That wallet, along with other missing items such as cash, medical cards, credit cards, and gift cards, was later found in another vehicle during a traffic stop.”

Arraignments for Klinger and Jendrzejak have not yet been scheduled.
