TABOR CITY, NC (WWAY) — Just when you thought the story of Allen “Frog” Strickland couldn’t get any stranger, well, move over Hurricane Irene.

Tabor City Police say Strickland went to the Vasco convenient store on Fair Bluff Road in Tabor City tonight, took out a knife and cut off his GPS monitor. He is required to wear the device as a condition of his bond.

Just last week a judge set Strickland’s bond at $1 million with a requirement that he wear the GPS tracking device until a trial on September 23 for charges of vandalism at the home of former state Sen. R.C. Soles.

Tabor City Police and Columbus County Sheriff’s deputies are now searching for Strickland, who is considered a fugitive. Charges for removing the tracking device will be filed.

Strickland is due in court tomorrow on unrelated charges.

    He seems to enjoy hanging out with older males.

    All the police need to do is look under Soles’s bed.

    Run – you don’t want to get pounded with a pipe!

  • anne says:

    I hope:

    that whomever put up the bond money is sweating it out now and crying over their loss;
    that the bounty hunters find him, but don’t shoot him;
    that he is brought back and put in jail and LEFT THERE!

    He has no respect for authority and made the justice system of Columbus County look like idiots! Time to do something people!

  • Wowza says:

    Really, it must be simply magical. I don’t know who provides the magic, RC or Frog or both, but it must be one of the friendships of the ages.

    About R.C. Soles and Allen “Frog” Strickland I can only quote someone far more eloquent than me.

    “Don’t you find that love is a torment?”

    Someone has created a wheres frog facebook page.!/wheresfrog

  • Skeptic says:

    I really would like to see that money paid out, however we must remember that the anonymous benefactor of young men in that county probably has a complicated agreement with the bail company.

    I wouldn’t be surprised that if any money is paid, it will be a paltry sum because of the group discount the benefactor must have, since the young men in this perpetual drama, have no assets, and the secrecy involved about said donor.

    Hopefully, a judge somewhere will get the case, and it will have to be paid in full.

    That might slow down the “tater train” that has been rolling for so long.

    If there is trouble with the bond, put some sunshine on it and put an end to this soap opera.

    Of course, it seems that the justice system has also been “trained” to disregard the truth, in favor of influential, long time, good ole boy relationships.

    Maybe good ole Beverly Perdue can launch an investigation, after she’s done with the Highway Patrol, and Irene.

    One things for sure. The LAW has been raped and mocked enough in Tabor City.

    … least the government get’s the $1 Million. Hey, it’s a recession, they need it!!!!!

  • dittos says:

    ..are you serious….ARE YOU SERIOUS!!???

  • Concerned_Citizen says:

    Why does he mess up? He has more than any other teenager as far as money and possessions is concerned. This was pure stupidity on Frog’s part. He would have probably walked out of court with only misdemeanor charges, but now he is in serious trouble.

    1,000,000 dollars!! I bet the bondsman has bounty hunters working hard tonight!

    Must be something else to the car theft story for this to happen. Maybe when he is caught this time he will tell the truth about RC’s addiction with young boys, that everyone living in Tabor City has known about, but ignored when voting for RC in the past.

    This is a shame, he has had so many chances to straiten up. RC is to blame for these boys acting like this. He has not helped them, he has ruined their lives, because of the stigma he has put on them! He funds the behavior! I imagine it is hard to be known around town as the young teen or man that has certain relations with RC, and possibly receives money for these relations. It would do a lot to the ego.

    The best thing Frog could do his to move away for a while, and go somewhere no one knows him, at least until RC is gone, or even better RC needs to move far away and leave young boys alone (only when RC is gone, will these boys have a chance at straitening up). RC is the source of the problem! These boys are just pawns, I almost feel sorry for them, but then I realize they where willing to take part in the crude acts that have occurred, and should also pay a price, but RC should pay the bigger price, and he ultimately will one day.

    Have no fear America. Tabor City Police Detective Greg Sibbitt will not rest until justice is served. Public Enemy No.1 Frog Strickland will be caught, cuffed, beaten to a pulp, pistol to head, along with a taped confession. Just as soon as Greg is unleashed by the Chief. Greg faces some serious charges of his own, you know. He sure would like to have a little redemption before he stands trial for his own crimes.

  • taxpayer says:

    S.O.S.-shoot on sight…and put us out of our misery of having to read anything further about this clown. I wonder if the police checked to see if he was enjoying a RC…and I don’t mean cola!

  • Guestacodeine says:

    Frog is pathologically incorrigible. Hell-bent on self-destruction, his life is looking more and more bleak and hopeless.

    Does he not have any family that care for him? What kind of environment did he grow up in? Is there anyone who can get through to him?

    It’s disturbing to watch someone self-destruct, but just like so many drug addicts and alcoholics that I have tried to counsel, Frog seems beyond help. He lacks the maturity to see the ruinous hell that will be his life . . . if . . . if he lives.

  • Guest says:

    I wounder who posted bail for him? I hope they lock him up and throw away the key this time he thanks hes above the law and does nothing but make himself and his lover look like fools! Grow up strickland it past time!

  • Guest says:

    Has anyone looked at RC Soles home in Tabor City, or his beach house? How about the single wide RC bought for Strickland in Tabor City? He’s bound to be there or at the $110k house RC bought for him. Just look for the Mercedez Benz, personalized plate ALLEN1, the RC Soles bought for him. It shouldn’t be too hard to find Strickland in one of those places.
