Winchester man charged with armed robbery

The promise of a ride turned into an armed robbery Monday afternoon.

Brandon Ingram, 25, of 394 S. Main St., was arrested later Monday and charged with first-degree robbery.

Winchester Police were called to 221 Mutual Ave. at 5:53 p.m. Monday, after the victim was able to call for help.

Winchester Police Capt. James Hall said when the victim got into Ingram’s vehicle, he pulled a gun and demanded her wallet.

“She complied and was able to get out of the vehicle without incident,” he said. Ingram then drove away.

Ingram was later located at a residence on Williamsburg Drive, where officers found a handgun and some of the money from the robbery.

During an interview with police, Ingram admitted to his role, Hall said.

Ingram may not be the only person charged with the robbery.

“We think there’s someone else who helped set this up,” Hall said.

Possible suspects have been identified, he said.

Ingram is being held in the Clark County Detention Center.
