More Felony Indictments For Mayfield

The beat goes on for former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield, who was indicted by an Iredell County (NC) Grand Jury today for a series of larcenies dating back to 2010.

Mayfield was indicted on five separate counts of felonious breaking and entering of tractor-trailers, a single count of felony larceny, two counts of felony breaking and entering and one count of felony larceny from a building. The charges are related to a Feb. 26, 2011 burglary at Anderson Truck Lines in Hudson, NC. Local police spotted a suspicious truck – occupied by Mayfield and another man -- parked behind the business at 3 a.m., and were told by Mayfield that they were resting after purchasing the truck in another state earlier that day. The men were not detained, but later that day, Anderson Truck Lines phoned authorities to report that four storage trailers had been burglarized and approximately $100,000 in furniture and other items stolen.

Police later executed a search warrant at Mayfield’s residence and found about half the stolen property.

The indictments are the latest in a series of legal problems for Mayfield, who was in court earlier this month to answer five additional felony charges of methamphetamine possession. His Newton, NC, home is scheduled to go on the auction block later this month, after Mayfield and his wife defaulted on more than $3 million in mortgage loans owed to Carolina Farm Credit. He recently suffered the latest in a series of judicial setbacks in his lawsuit against NASCAR, CEO Brian France and the company that oversaw his failed 2009 drug test, when the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an earlier ruling by Judge Graham Mullen that he had waived his right to sue the sanctioning body.
