COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Another strange chapter in the relationship between R.C. Soles and a teenage boy. Allen “Frog” Strickland turned himself in this morning after yet another vandalism incident at the former senator’s house.
Tabor City Police say they were called to Soles’s home Sunday around 4 p.m. after witnesses saw Strickland vandalizing his property.
Strickland is no stranger to the Soles saga. For years the teen has been linked to the former senator, who has bought Strickland a house and other lavish gifts. Now, Strickland is charged with trespassing and vandalizing Soles’s car and home near Tabor City again.
Police say they found a broken window and busted tail light when they went to the home Sunday. Witnesses on the property say Strickland damaged the items and then ran away leaving his moped on the property.
Police say Strickland turned himself in Monday morning and was released on $1,000 secured bond before noon.
We tried to speak with Strickland this afternoon at his home. He said he had no comment. When we were getting footage of the house Strickland set off his home security alarm and called the police. An officer told us that Strickland said we were trespassing although we never stepped foot on his property.
We tried to speak with soles as well, but were told he was unavailable for comment.
Strickland is scheduled to be in court next month for trespassing and vandalism at Soles’s home back in February. Prosecutors have subpoenaed Soles to testify against Strickland in the case.
