Mayfield was seen at trucking company where trailers were stolen
Jeremy Mayfield was spotted in the cab of a tractor trailer and some of the furniture stolen from the trucking company where he was seen has ended up in his home, a police search warrant says.

Police raided the former NASCAR driver's home on Nov. 1 after they got a tip that stolen items were there. They found some meth and Mayfield was later indicted on a felony drug charge.

The police also found $100,000 worth of stolen items – and now a trucking company says that furniture they had was found in the stolen loot, according to a search warrant.

The incident involving Mayfield happened at 3 am on Feb. 26 when a tractor trailer -- without a trailer -- was parked in the rear lot of Anderson Truck Lines in Hudson, the warrant says.

The truck was not supposed to be there at that hour and a Hudson police officer approached the truck, according to the warrant. Inside the cab of the truck was Jeremy Mayfield and another man, the search warrant says.

Police reported that the pair told police that they were there to rest. The police officer left, but just 15 hours later four trailers were reported stolen from the business.

When police searched the Mayfield home several items from the trailer were found, authorities said. About $50,000 worth of furniture was taken and the items found in Mayfield's home was the only part of the load that's been recovered.

"We're still searching for more property," said Hudson Police Chief Andy Day. "No charges filed and we anticipate that the investigation will continue for some time."

Mayfield has not been charged with anything other than meth possession.

A warrant for the search of Mayfield's home tells how police worked, for about a month, with a tipster who told them Mayfield and about four others would break in to different businesses and steal.

The warrant says that this type of criminal activity has been going on for about a year. WBTV.com
