61-year-old Andre Timothy Ingram stole property from his ex-wife, Stanley Sucrontae Rena, at their previously shared residence on January 24th. Rena called the police, reporting that Ingram had stolen items that she owned before their marriage. Rena explained how she allowed Ingram to stay at her house after their divorce while she waited at another location for him to move. Ingram refused to leave the house, so Rena evicted him. Then, when Rena returned to the home, she noticed her belongings were missing. Detectives were informed that Ingram and Rena signed divorce papers in September 2020, stating, “All personal property the Plaintiff has now is his/hers,” and, “All personal property the Defendant has now is his/hers.” Rena provided officers with a moving receipt from 2015 showing her residing at the address before their marriage.
Officers then went to speak with Ingram, who admitted to taking some of the listed items. Rena told officers that during many conversations after their divorce, Rena had told him that she did not care what he took as long as he moved out of the location. Officers advised him to return her property, which Ingram agreed to. Officers notified Rena, telling her she had to give him time to return the property. On February 12th, Rena’s lawyer sent a letter via US Postal Service and email, giving Ingram 10 days to return the stolen items. On February 27th, Ingram still had not returned her belongings or called her lawyer to arrange it. Officers followed up with Rena, who updated her list of missing things. Rena noted that two of her firearms, which she provided proof of purchase for, were also missing. Ingram was taken into custody for theft of property and the theft of a firearm on February 28th.
