NBC10 has confirmed the resignation of anchor Lori Delgado, who's been at the center of a bizarre series of events at the station this summer involving former anchor Vince DeMentri.

Delgado, a New Yorker whose husband is a New York lawyer, joined the station in January 2005.

Delgado, who turned 29 two weeks ago, was on a previously scheduled week of vacation last week.

CBS3 with Lane and Mendte
Neither. I'm sick of the drama.

NBC had been investigating alleged incidents at the station. In one, Delgado's personal property (a hair dryer, curling iron and handbag) was moved from her desk drawer to another spot under her desk. In another, a deep scratch was found on her Lexus, parked in the NBC10 lot in Bala Cynwyd. DeMentri, 44, had been questioned by NBC management. He was fired in August.

On Sept. 16, NBC10, Delgado and an NBC security official identified as Don were named in a praecipe filed by DeMentri attorney Paul Rosen in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court -- basically, a precursor to a lawsuit. The praecipe simply listed "libel, slander and misrepresentation" under the cause. No allegations were listed.

The station's news director, Chris Blackman, today issued this memo: "I wanted to let you let you know that Lori Delgado has resigned from NBC10 to spend more time with her family. We thank Lori for her contributions to the station and wish her well."
