Suspended NASCAR driver Mayfield faces new charges

READ MORE:

CATAWBA, NC (AP) - Former NASCAR racing driver Jeremy Mayfield faces new criminal charges.

Indictments by a Catawba County grand jury released Monday charge Mayfield with three counts of possessing property stolen from businesses, and a fourth charge of obtaining property by false pretense.

The indictment alleges the offenses took place around the time law officers raided his Catawba home in November.

The 42-year-old Mayfield was charged then with possessing 1.5 grams of methamphetamine. Detectives from neighboring Lincoln County said they also found about $100,000 worth of items taken from businesses in that county.

A Washington, DC-based attorney representing Mayfield after the November raid did not immediately return a message seeking comment Monday.

Mayfield was suspended from NASCAR after failing a drug test in 2009.
