Man convicted for armed robbery of multiple gas stations in Ventura County


VENTURA COUNTY, Calif. -- A man was found guilty for multiple robberies throughout Ventura County on Monday.

Ventura County District Attorney's Office announced that the jury found Andre Lamon Ingram, 33, guilty of four felony counts of second-degree robbery.

Ingram was convicted of robbing four gas stations across Ventura County over a two-week period.

The robberies happened throughout a two-month period between July and August of 2018.

On July 29, 2018, Ingram entered a Shell Gas station in Ventura around 9:20 p.m. He wore dark clothing, gloves and a mask. He brandished a firearm at the store clerk demanding money from the registers. The clerk opened the two registers and Ingram fled the scene with cash and the clerk's cell phone.

The second incident happened on August 1, 2018. Around 9:55 p.m., Ingram ran into a Shell Gas station in Ventura armed with the same firearm and wearing the same clothing and mask. He demanded money from the registers at gun point and fled the scene with the cash drawer.

On August 3, 2018 at 11:20 p.m., Ingram ran into a Mobil Gas station in Thousand Oaks armed with the same firearm and outfit. He ordered the clerk to hand over the clerk's wallet and cell phone. Ingram also ordered the clerk to open the registers and safe. Ingram fled the scene with the clerk's wallet, phone, cash from the registers and a box containing the rest of the cash in the store.

The last incident happened on August 9, 2018 at 12:55 p.m., Ingram entered a 7-Eleven store in Oxnard. He was wearing a mask along with similar clothing and the same firearm. Ingram again demanded the clerk to open the registers and hand over his cell phone and wallet. He fled the scene with the clerk's cell phone and cash from the registers.

Ventura County Sheriff's Office conducted a thorough investigation by seeking search warrants to obtain electronic cell phone information.

The cell phone information records place Ingram's cellphone at the scene of each of the robberies.

Investigators also found that Ingram conducted several internet searches for information about all four robberies after they had been committed.

Investigators say when Ingram was arrested for unrelated charges on August 10, 2018, officers found several items from the robberies, including an imitation firearm.

Ingram's sentencing is scheduled for January 5, 2020 at 8:30 a.m. in courtroom 45 of the Ventura County Superior Court.

Ingram faces a maximum sentence of eight years in prison.
