It was reported Nov. 2, 2011 that in addition to finding methamphetamine at ex-NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield's home, police also seized roughly 40 firearms from his North Carolina house. Catawba County Sheriff's office Joel Fish stated most of the guns were rifles and shotguns with a few handguns. The police were initially called to search Mayfield's home after a tip suggested there was stolen property stored there. Reports claim there was stolen merchandise in the home including sound equipment and Red Bull Racing gear. After the police raid, Mayfield was arrested for felony possession of methamphetamine. This is not Mayfield's first incident with illegal substances. His narcotic use in 2009 had him suspended by NASCAR.
