Mayfield, a former NASCAR driver, was indicted by the Catawba County grand jury on Monday for felony possession of methamphetamine. Deputies say they found 6 baggies of meth in his home during a search they did on Nov. 1 for stolen goods.
The tipster also tells police Mayfield would steal the items to get money to support his drug habit. The person told police the former driver used methamphetamine frequently. The source alleges Mayfield consumed the drug more than 500 times in their presence.
The search warrant also mentions Mayfield allegedly stole from Fitz Motorsports in Mooresville, NC. Police say two surface plates used to build race cars were stolen from that business. Also cases of oil and other motor equipment taken.
The search warrant also includes an accusation that Mayfield stole from nearby Red Bull Racing as well.
About $100,000 worth of stolen merchandise was found on Mayfield's property. Police are working now to figure out if Mayfield knew the items were stolen and he had something to do with it.
The Sheriff's Office says there are 69 guns that have been logged and are still waiting to see if any are stolen.
In addition to these potential theft charges, Mayfield is also facing tax problems. Catawba county tax officials say Mayfield owes more than $82,000 in back taxes on his four properties. Authorities say he is one step from foreclosure.
No word when or if theft charges will come for Mayfield. Investigators say that will be up to the District Attorney.
Detectives have been going around to metal scrap yards in the area looking for more evidence and talking to people.
