Video surveillance also captured him on camera, and a witness identified him in a police lineup after he was arrested Wednesday in Oak Park, according to police, who allege that Ingram later confessed.
“This was a case of solid, methodical detective work,” Elmwood Park Police Chief Frank Fagiano said in a prepared statement.
Ingram, of the 2100 block of 51st Court in Cicero, is due in bond court Friday. If convicted, he faces between six and 30 years in prison.MORE NEWS: View Live Radar
