McDonalds manager charged in robbery

The McDonalds manager on duty at the time of a robbery last weekend has been charged in connection to the crime.

Fineola Ingram was in jail Saturday, charged with first degree robbery for the incident one week earlier.

Cole County prosecuting attorney Mark Richardson described Ingram as being "in concert" with the men who committed the robbery on Nov. 9.

She had been ordered to remove cash from the store safe at gunpoint early that morning.

Court documents described recorded evidence indicating that Ingram knew about the robbery in advance and may have none who the robbers would be. She denied any knowledge of the crime during an interview with investigators.

Ingram's criminal record includes a couple previous convictions for stealing and theft.
