WILLIAMSBURG - Hired to clean up at a Williamsburg home last year, police say a Newport News man cleaned out $50,000 worth of jewelry.
Christopher L. Ingram, 34, was charged Wednesday with two counts of grand larceny and two counts of larceny with intent to sell. Maj. Greg Riley with Williamsburg Police said Ingram has yet to be arrested.
Around 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 16, 2013, officers responded to a report of larceny on Bayberry Lane. Riley said the 64-year-old victim told police that several pieces of jewelry, valued at $50,000, were taking by a cleaning staff .
Investigation revealed that a member of the cleaning staff, identified as Ingram, pawned some of the jewelry at a Newport News pawn shop, according to Riley. He said a small amount of the jewelry was recovered.
