TABOR CITY, NC (WWAY) -- Tabor City Police arrested two people over the weekend in connection with a chase that ended in a crash Saturday night, and the crime apparently started at a well-known address in town.

Investigators say the vehicle was stolen from outside former Sen. R.C. Soles's home.

Christopher Byrd and Krystal Burgess are charged with larceny of a motor vehicle and fleeing to elude arrest.

According to police reports, an officer spotted a car that matched the description of the stolen car. When he put on his lights, the driver sped off and lost control of the car, crashing into a ditch.

The woman whose car was stolen said she and another man picked up Byrd, Burgess and Frankie and Danielle Jernigan at a motel and took them to Soles's house to get $2,600 with the promise she would get $100.

Tabor City Police say they expect to make more arrests in this case.

WTH?

I can't believe this! Soles? Motel? Degenerate, transient kids? $2600.00? WHAT???? I am thoroughly confused! Doesn't ANYONE want to investigate Mr. Soles? Does this not seem like it warrants an investigation, given his history? I'll say it again, WTH?

If I were Soles

If I were Soles, I would hire me a 24-hour security guard, and I would station him in a small building at the entrance of my drive. He could easily afford one.

His house is a magnet for the lowlifes of Columbus County, and, believe me, there are a lot of lowlifes here--many of them strung out on Oxycodone.

The sound of a bottle of these pills being shaken--the pills making a rattling sound-- is Columbus County's mating call.

He doesn't want anyone to

He doesn't want anyone to watch his driveway nor his office. These same mentioned people are in and out of his office all day everyday. Mr. Soles is getting old and when he dies, Tabor City is going to have one huge problem with a bunch of druggies that wont have their Sugar Daddy to fork out thousands a week. The crime rate will go up then! They will have to get busy robbing people because the open money pit will be closed. Perhaps he should think of leaving a trust fund for them to save the town from disaster.

omg

Seriously, what the hell is RC up to?

RC again...where is Brian?

Should have been a priest and it would have been covered up! RC Soles and Brian Berger keep the entertainment coming.

WOW imagine that.. I told my

WOW imagine that.. I told my wife when I first heard it on the news last night it was probably RC's or involved him or his crowd.

RC SOLES AGAIN_ BLAHHHH

It seems RC is on the wrong side again... I just wonder how many things he was involved in that was never published. I bet he would have done prison time if all was known about him---and now they want to give this man an award
