We now know a little bit more about Allen Strickland’s finances. He is the 17 year old from Tabor City, who bought a house and a Corvette with money given to him by State Senator RC Soles. Strickland recently posted bail on a half million dollars bond, after being arrested for leading police on a high speed chase in his car. The unemployed teenager would not comment on where he got the money to post that bail, but WWAY found out Wednesday he sold his Corvette on the same day he made bond. The owners of P & C Wrecker, the impound lot where the car is being held, confirm they bought the Corvette from Strickland, but declined to say how much they paid for it.
