Three men suspected of an attempted break-in at Richard Childress’ home last month have been arrested, according to the Davidson County (NC) Sherriff’s Office.
Niquan Victorin, 20, Chantz Hines, 18, of Winston-Salem and Armeka Spinks, 18, of Salisbury, North Carolina, are due in Lexington District Court on January 29 on charges of first-degree burglary and first-degree trespassing. All three men are being held in the Davidson County Detention Center under $250,000 secured bond.
According to a statement released by the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office, the investigation involved the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office, the Winston-Salem Police Department and the State Bureau of Investigations. During the investigation, it was found that the firearms seen on Childress’ security cameras matched firearms that had been reported stolen to WSPD after a Dec. 15 break-in, the statement says.
Search warrants for the men who were identified as the suspects were executed and produced evidence connecting the suspects to both crimes, the sheriff’s office says.
On Dec. 17, Childress armed himself and fired at the three men after they had broken a window next to a doorknob to gain access to his home around 10:30 p.m. There were no injuries.
Richard Childress Racing has not commented on the matter.
