CANDLER, N.C. (AP) - The grandson of NASCAR driver Jack Ingram is accused of 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 on Thursday with breaking and entering and larceny.
Authorities say $5,000 worth of items were taken from Jack Ingram's home June 29, including the diamond ring he 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.
