Suspects in attempted break-in at Richard Childress’ home have court dates set Richard Childress Racing Twitter

The three young suspected accused of trying to break into Richard Childress’ home last month have had their preliminary court dates set.

The suspects — Niquan Victorin, 20,  Chance Hines, 18, and Armeka Spinks, 18 — are all scheduled to appear in Davidson (NC) District Court on Jan. 16, according to North Carolina Court records.

Childless, the NASCAR Hall of Famer, was home with his wife when he heard a window break. He grabbed his handgun and went to investigate. He opened the front door, fired three shots, and the intruders fled. None of the men actually made their way into Childress’ home.

His surveillance camera caught three suspects who tried to conceal their identity. But Sheriff David Grice told Alt-Driver said that, based on the surveillance video at Childress’ home, one suspect appeared to be carrying a “a rifle, sort of an AR-type rifle with 25-30 round magazine,” a shotgun and a handgun. The suspects were covered head to toe and authorities can only see their eyes.

The suspects were all questioned and arrested and charged with attempted 1st Degree Burglary and 1st Degree Trespassing.  They’re all being held in the Davidson County Detention Center under a $250,000.00 secured bond.

The firearms used in the attempted burglary were stolen, and authorities said the weapons matched the description of those used in the Childress incident. From there, authorities were able to track down the suspects.
