Three Arrested In Attempted Break-in At Richard Childress' Home

UPDATE 2: 1-2-2018 Two Winston-Salem men and another from Salisbury have been charged with attempting to break into NASCAR owner Richard Childress' home on Dec. 17.

According to a Davidson County Sheriff's Office news release, sheriff's investigators learned from the Winston-Salem Police Department that three firearms used at Childress' home matched firearms that had been stolen on Dec. 15 in a break-in in Winston-Salem.

Three suspects were identified in the Dec. 15 firearm theft and after further investigation, it was learned that all three of those suspects matched the physical descriptions of the suspects in the Childress attempted burglary.

With assistance from Winston-Salem police and the State Bureau of Investigation, Davidson County Sheriff's investigators executed search warrants on two residences inside the city limits of Winston-Salem.

Evidence was found during the searches connecting the three suspects to both the Dec. 15 break-in and the attempted burglary at Childress' home on Hampton Road in Davidson County.

All three are each charged with attempted first-degree burglary and first-degree trespassing.

They are being held in the Davidson County Jail with bail set for each at $250,000. They are scheduled to appear in Davidson County District Court on Jan. 29.

Two of the three men arrested in the attempted armed burglary of the home of NASCAR team owner Richard Childress have reached plea deals with prosecutors.

Chantz Hines, 19, and Niquan Victorin, 21, were sentenced recently in North Carolina court to 31 to 50 months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit first degree burglary, according to court records. A case against a third defendant, Armeka Spinks, 19, is still pending, with his next court date July 16.

Childress and his wife were asleep at about 10:30 p.m. Dec. 17 when they heard the crash of glass, according to police accounts of the incident. Childress reported to police that he got his gun and shot at the suspected burglars, who fled the scene uninjured.

Childress, a first vice president of the NRA, told the sheriff that "the only reason he and his wife were here today was because of God and the Second Amendment."

The damage to a glass door was estimated at $1,000, according to the incident report.

Childress owns two full-time cars in the NASCAR Cup Series for Austin Dillon and Ryan Newman.
