The three men charged with an attempted break-in at Richard Childress’ home last month are facing additional charges.
Niquan Victorin, 20, Chantz Hines, 18, of Winston-Salem and Armeka Spinks, 18, of Salisbury, North Carolina have now been charged with conspiracy to commit burglary and possession of stolen weapons, according to the Davidson County (N.C.) Sheriff’s Office. The were previously charged with first-degree burglary and first-degree trespassing. They are due in Lexington District Court on January 29.
On Dec. 17, Childress armed himself and fired at three men after they broke a window next to a doorknob to gain access to his home around 10:30 p.m. There were no injuries.
A multi-agency investigation found that firearms seen on Childress’ security cameras matched firearms that had been reported stolen to the Winston-Salem Police Department after a Dec. 15 break-in, the Davidson County Sherriff’s Office said in a statement earlier this month.
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.
