The attorney for Jeremy Mayfield claims his client is not guilty of charges for the possession of stolen goods or methamphetamines.
The drugs and stolen items were found on Mayfield’s 400 acre property by North Carolina’s Catawba County police on Tuesday night.
The former NASCAR driver’s attorney Daniel Marino issued a statement in response to the arrest and allegations:
“Last evening, the Catawba County Sheriff’s Department conducted a search at the home of Jeremy Mayfield. Mr. Mayfield understands that the purpose of the search was to seize allegedly stolen property and that the investigators claim to have seized methamphetamine from his home.
“Mr. Mayfield has no knowledge of either stolen property or methamphetamine being present on his property and denies the accusation that he was in possession of methamphetamine or any other illegal drug and he denies any suggestion that he knowingly received or possessed stolen property.”
Marino insists the search and resulting evidence were both unfounded.
“This search was prompted by what the evidence will show were baseless allegations by an unreliable source,” the statement continued. “Mr. Mayfield and his attorneys are cooperating with the authorities and they look forward to this matter being resolved quickly. In the meantime, Mr. Mayfield asks that the public reserve its judgment on this matter.”
Mayfield was released on $3,000 bond after the arrest and has a November 14 court date scheduled.
