On 08/11/2017, officers of the Johnson City Police Department arrested Robert Ingram (3804 Roanoke Ave, Newport News, VA, 52 years old) and charged him with being a Fugitive from Justice.
At approximately 2:14 p.m., officers responded to the area of 225 S. Commerce St, in reference to a woman walking in the middle of the road interrupting traffic. Upon arrival officers located the woman and after speaking with her it was determined that she was in need of help due to her altered mental state. Officers transported her back to her residence to make contact with her boyfriend, Ingram. While entering Ingram into the report a NCIC hit showed that he had an active warrant out of Virginia for failure to appear for grand larceny.
After confirming the warrant with Virginia authorities Ingram was arrested and transported to the Washington County Detention Center, where he is being held in lieu of a bond hearing. Arraignment is set for 08/14/2017 at 9:00 a.m. in Washington County General Session Court.
