NEWTON, NC (AP) — Former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield has been convicted on charges of possession of stolen goods and drug paraphernalia.

Mayfield was convicted Monday in Catawba County Court.

He’s been placed on unsupervised probation for 18 months. He also was ordered to pay more than $88,000 in restitution and $1,100 in fines and other costs.

Mayfield was suspended by NASCAR in 2009 after it said he twice tested positive for methamphetamine use. He denied illegal drug use, but the suspension was upheld after two appeals.

Mayfield was charged after a police raid at his house found stolen property. Authorities say they found heavy machinery from nearby companies and equipment taken from a racing operation.

Mayfield and his wife were evicted from the house in November 2012 after the home went into foreclosure.
