ELLERBE — A man with a history of theft is accused of several larceny-related crimes dating back to December, according to Richmond County sheriff’s deputies.
Deputies say Keith J. Ingram, 44 of Second Street, Ellerbe, broke into a vehicle on Robinson Avenue in Ellerbe Dec. 2. Four days later, deputies say Ingram attempted to break into a house on N.C. 73.
Most recently, deputies say Ingram stole detergent from the Dollar General store in Ellerbe on June 22.
Deputies arrested Ingram that day and charged him with breaking and entering of a motor vehicle, attempted breaking and entering, two counts of misdemeanor larceny and two counts of resisting a public officer. Deputies also charged him with being a habitual larceny due to his criminal past.
Ingram was jailed on a $6,000 secured bond.
N.C. Division of Adult Correction records show convictions for both misdemeanor and felony larceny dating back to 1993. Ingram also has convictions for misdemeanor and felony counts of breaking and entering and assault on an officer.
Records show Ingram has spent 20 months behind bars in the past 21 years. His last conviction was in November 2011.
