ALBION – An Albion man with an extensive criminal history, including four prior felonies, was convicted by a jury on several drug charges on Friday.

Charles G. Ingram, 58, was arrested on April 1 along with 15 others following a six-month investigation into the sale and distribution of crack cocaine, heroin, prescription narcotics and marijuana in the village of Albion, the Orleans County Major Felony Crime Task Force reported then.

Ingram was living in 175 North Main St., Room No. 20, when he was arrested. He has been in the Orleans County Jail since then.

Ingram was arraigned on charges of three counts of criminal sale and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree. He rejected a plea offer from Orleans County District Attorney Joe Cardone.

Ingram went to trial last week and he was found guilty of two counts each of criminal sale and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, as well as one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree.

His sentencing date hasn’t been set.
