ROCKINGHAM — Police say a man netted more than $200 after getting someone else to sell a stolen laptop.
Rockingham police say Larry Allen Ingram, 36, of Lakeview Trail, Rockingham, was in possession of a stolen 15-inch Apple MacBook June 25 before giving it to Michael Manship to sell.
A warrant for Ingram’s arrest states Manship sold it to Computers.com in Rockingham for $250, providing both a false name and phone number to the buyer.
Manship kept $20 and gave the remaining $230 to Ingram, according to the warrant.
Ingram was arrested Aug. 5 and charged with a count of felony possession of stolen goods or property and felony obtaining property by false pretenses.
He was jailed under a $5,000 secured bond and ordered not to have contact with the prosecuting witness.
Rockingham police say the case is still under investigation and they are planning to make another arrest.
According to court records, Ingram is also currently facing misdemeanor charges of breaking and entering, causing injury to real property and domestic criminal trespassing.
Records from the N.C. Department of Public Safety show Ingram has two prior convictions of misdemeanor larceny in Richmond County in 1999 and 2012. He has also been convicted of simple assault and resisting an officer.
