Hamlet Police Search for Woman Accused of Harboring Shooting Suspect

HAMLET— After waiting several days for a suspect to turn herself in, the Hamlet Police Department is going public.

Late Tuesday morning, the department posted on its Facebook page that officers are looking for Nancy Ingram, who is wanted on an outstanding warrant for harboring a fugitive.

Investigators say they visited Ingram’s home last Thursday looking for Edward Sloan, who was wanted as the suspect in a shooting at the Richmond County Soup Kitchen.

After they left empty handed, Ingram commented on Richmond Observer Facebook post, telling the police not to come back to her home. However, they returned later that afternoon and found Sloan with Ingram, according to Detective Capt. Randy Dover.

Sloan was arrested and jailed under a $1 million secured bond on charges of attempted first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Officers obtained an arrest warrant for Ingram on Friday.

On Saturday morning, Ingram posted on the Richmond Observer’s Facebook page that she would be turning herself in.


She also made multiple posts on her own wall claiming her innocence and asking for bail money, complaining that someone lied about her involvement.

“GOD send your angels to cover me I haven’t did anything wrong.. FEED, CLOTHE PEOPLE THAT’S IT..,” she posted.

Anyone with information on Ingram’s whereabouts is encouraged to call the Hamlet Police Department at 910-582-2551.

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