A Catawba County Grand Jury on Wednesday handed down two more indictments against former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield for possession of stolen goods, both felonies.

This brings to five the number of Catawba County indictments for the same charge. He also faces charges of felony possession of methamphetamine and obstruction of justice.

All seven charges stem from a search investigators conducted on Mayfield’s property on Hudson Chapel Road in Catawba on Nov. 1, 2011. Law enforcement found 1.5 grams of methamphetamine in a safe in Mayfield’s home, as well as sound equipment and electronics, Red Bull Racing signs, tools and furniture that were reported stolen, according to indictments.

Mayfield was indicted in Caldwell County for four counts of felony larceny. Mayfield, 42, was charged by Hudson Police in February 2011 after a year-long investigation. Police say Mayfield was seen  in the early morning hours of Feb. 26, 2011 asleep in the cab of a tractor trailer at 2698 Hickory Blvd., the former home of Anderson Truck Lines. Police allege Mayfield stole thousands of dollars worth of furniture, and four trailers.
