Following a thorough investigation, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies determined that Keesha S. Ingram, 41, of the block of 7600 South Prairie Avenue, Chicago, was responsible for making a ‘swatting call’ on December 11, 2018 that resulted in a major law enforcement response to the block of 17600 Dawn Court in Warren Township. The Lake County Sheriff’s office released the announcement on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.

The investigation revealed that Keesha Ingram was an acquaintance of the targeted victim. The investigation determined that Ingram wanted money she believed was owed by the victim. The victim wasn’t providing payment, and in an attempt to seek revenge, Ingram placed the swatting call. During the call she indicated a man was attempting to shoot his wife, which prompted the major public safety response.

On January 8th, a $25,000 arrest warrant was obtained for Ingram for one count of felony disorderly conduct; for Ingram making a false 911 call for the purpose of transmitting a false alarm, when she knew there was no reasonable grounds for making the call.

Sheriff Idleburg reminds the community all defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.

Keesha Ingram, Lake County swatting suspect

Keesha Ingram.

Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded about 5:15 a.m. Tuesday December 11, 2018 to an address in the block of 17600 Dawn Court in Warren Township to a report of a man threatening to shoot his wife.

Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived and established a perimeter around the house. They successfully made contact with the occupants of the home, and a man and woman exited the residence. Through an interview with both individuals, Sheriff’s Deputies learned there was no domestic incident and no indication there was going to be a shooting or acts of violence.

Sheriff’s Deputies determined this was a “swatting” incident and further investigation revealed a likely source of fake call for help. The swatting incident is under investigation.

No injuries were reported.

Swatting is defined as a prank or spoof call that involves a fake 9-1-1 call and a significant law enforcement response to specific address where there is no actual emergency. Techniques, such as Caller ID spoofing, cause 9-1-1 center personnel to be tricked into believing that a victim or complainant is calling for help from a specific address. Swatting is typically carried out to harass and frighten the actual residents at the spoofed address.
