Rockingham man charged with selling cocaine

ROCKINGHAM — A man accused of selling cocaine is facing more than a half-dozen criminal charges.

The Rockingham Police Department served a search warrant Tuesday at the Galestown Road home of 58-year-old Stacey Milton Ingram, according to a Facebook post, which doesn’t give any details of the search or what led to it.

Richmond County Jail records show Ingram is charged with three counts of maintaining a vehicle, dwelling or place for a controlled substance; two counts of selling or delivering a Schedule II controlled substance; one count of possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance; one count of felony possession of a Schedule II controlled substance; and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Ingram is being held on a $100,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court July 7.

Online court records show Ingram has an Aug. 8 court date for traffic citations involving two cases of having an expired registration.

Ingram was first convicted of selling a Schedule II controlled substance in 1992 and given probation — which was revoked when he was convicted on the same charge in a different case 10 months later, according to records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction.

Ingram served three months shy of two years behind bars.

He was convicted again in 2014 on two counts of selling a Schedule II controlled substance and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon and was incarcerated for 13 months.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
