LYNN, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say two people face charges of breaking into the home of an eastern Indiana race track owner and stealing about $80,000 in cash and checks.

The Randolph County Sheriff’s Department says those arrested were a 21-year-old woman who had volunteered as a trophy girl at the Winchester Speedway and a 25-year-old man who worked at another business run by track owner Charlie Shaw.

The Star Press reports the burglary of Shaw’s home in the town of Lynn took place in early September, soon after the annual Labor Day Stock Car Festival at the Winchester track.

The sheriff’s department says the two suspects spent around $35,000 in cash on various items, including a new vehicle. They face preliminary charges of burglary and theft.
