One day after I revealed Steven Ingersoll's bench warrant, the convicted felon sauntered over to Bay County's court facility on Washington Avenue and paid off an outstanding $120.00 building code violation fine. The warrant was recalled after Ingersoll paid the March 16, 2016 judgment.
But Steven Ingersoll isn't the only deadbeat in his Center Avenue household.
Deborah Ingersoll entered a not guilty plea in April 2014 when she was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit fraud. The charge was later dismissed.
Bay County court records reveal Deborah, a conspicuous courtroom clothes horse, was slapped with a $15,043.39 judgment on August 31, 2016 by American Express Bank. Served with a summons on April 15, 2016, Deborah Ingersoll failed to make payments as required by her credit card agreement.
On October 20, a “non-periodic garnishment” was issued, which allowed American Express to seize the money Deborah Ingersoll owed directly from her bank account.
The one-time recovery seizure netted American Express only $47.23.
By my calculation, that leaves $14,996.16 still outstanding.
Time for a yard sale!
