Suspects face additional charges in Childress home break-in
Three men charged in an attempted break-in at NASCAR team owner Richard Childress’ home in December are now facing additional charges.
Niquan Victorin, 20, and Chantz Kade Hines, 18, both of Winston-Salem, and Armeka Vantonne Spinks, 18, of Salisbury have been charged with conspiracy to commit burglary and possession of stolen firearms, according to the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office.
On Jan. 2, Victorin, Hines and Spinks were charged with attempted first-degree burglary and first-degree trespassing in connection to the Childress break-in.
They are in the Davidson County Detention Center under additional $200,000 bonds for the new charges and given a court date of Feb. 5, according to the Lexington Dispatch.
Childress, owner of both Richard Childress Racing and Childress Vineyards, lives in Davidson County. According to previous reports, in the late evening of Dec. 17, Childress heard noises in the lower level of his home, armed himself and fired at three people who fled the scene.
No one was hurt.
The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office later said the three men in the attempted break-in were armed with military-type guns.
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.
Search warrants for the men who were identified as the suspects were executed and produced evidence connecting the suspects to both crimes, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
