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.
