Grandson charged with theft from NASCAR's Ingram


CANDLER, NC (AP) -- The grandson of NASCAR driver Jack Ingram
has been charged with stealing his championship rings and other
mementos, then asking Ingram to pay for their return.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports Buncombe County
investigators charged 25-year-old Jackson Layne Ingram Thursday
with breaking and entering and larceny.

Police said $5,000 worth of items were taken from Ingram's home
June 29, including the diamond ring Ingram won for his 1982 Busch
Series championship , a 1985 championship ring, a watch and his
wife's high school ring.

A few days later, a caller asked for $1,000 to return the items,
but Ingram said no.

Jackson Ingram was being held at the Buncombe County Detention
Center. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.
