An El Reno woman is wanted in Custer County after allegedly stealing her grandmother’s car.
According to a probable cause affidavit, an outstanding warrant was issued for the arrest of 36-year-old Lee Ann Wolftongue after receiving a felony charge of larceny of an automobile after allegedly committing the crime sometime during the early morning hours of August 30.
The victim and her daughter would tell a Custer County Deputy that they allowed Wolftongue to stay at their Arapaho home after being told by Wolftongue that she was separating from her abusive boyfriend.
The victims would tell authorities that sometime over the night they would wake up and discover that the car was missing along with a cell phone, and Wolftongue could not be found.
Wolftongue was formally charged on September 7.
As of press time, she remains at large.
