Strickland released from prison


COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Allen Strickland the Tabor City teen with ties to Sen. R.C. Soles, was released from prison today. Strickland spent the last several months behind bars at the Western Youth Institute in Morganton. He was sent there after leading police on a high-speed chase in a Corvette paid for by Soles.

Strickland has some unrelated arson charges still pending against him. He's accused of burning down two houses in Tabor City, including the one he lived in, that was paid for by Soles.
