Tow Truck Driver Charged with Auto Theft

For Immediate Release


The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's Office issued warrants on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 on Leonard T. Ingram, 55 years of age, of the 800 block of Holland, St. Louis, Missouri 63119, for one count of stealing a motor vehicle. Ingram is a driver for Ingram Towing out of Webster Groves. A $25,000 bond was issued, and a photo of Ingram is attached.

Ingram reportedly stole a vehicle that had broken down and was on the side of Highway 70 near Earth City. A second vehicle was also stolen by Ingram which had broken down on the side of Highway 270 near Highway 367. This is the same suspect and company caught stealing a motor vehicle with a tow truck back in October of 2012.

Ingram Towing has not had a City or County License to do business as a tow operator since June of 2012. The company has focused primarily on scrapping junk cars (or stolen vehicles that are ten years old or older). We ask the public to report suspicious towing activity to Crimestoppers, the St. Louis County Police Auto Crime Unit or their local police departments.
