Three men have been charged with attempted first-degree burglary regarding the home of NASCAR team owner Richard Childress
The search for suspects has come to an end in the case of the attempted home invasion.
On December 17th, three masked men approached home of NASCAR team owner Richard Childress, each carrying heavy weapons. Childress and his wife were upstairs as they heard a crash at the door.
Richard Childress grabbed a weapon of his home after hearing the noise. He went downstairs and fired shots at the would-be intruders. The 3 men ran away from the home on Hampton Road in Davidson County but left evidence at the scene.
Richard Childress offered a $10,000 reward for information leading the arrest. Days later, he increased the reward to $50,000.
The three men have just been arrested. They are charged with attempted first-degree burglary and first-degree trespassing.
The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office coordinated with the Winston-Salem Police Department to bring the men to justice. The trespassers each carried rifles as they approached the home. Those rifles were captured on the home surveillance footage.
The Winston-Salem police department notified the Davidson division that the 3 rifles shown looked the same 3 rifles stolen on December 15th. All three suspects were identified in the Dec 15th home robbery.
Winston-Salem police and the Davidson County Sheriff were granted with search warrants for two residents of Winston-Salem, NC. Evidence collected during that search connected the men to both the Dec 15th robbery and the Dec 17th trespassing case.

Niquan Victorin – Age 20
651 Summit St., Apt. N, Winston-Salem
