"Frog" Strickland back in jail


COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Allen "Frog" Strickland is back in jail in Columbus County tonight after turning himself in to bail bondsman Mark Cartret.

On August 19 Allen Strickland was released on $1 million bond along with the stipulation that he wear a GPS monitoring device and have no contact with former state Senator R.C. Soles.

Thursday Strickland violated court orders by going to Soles's home. Strickland then went to the Vasco convenience store in Tabor City and removed his monitoring device.

Strickland is now in the Columbus County jail charged with first degree trespassing and pretrial removal of an electronic monitoring device.

He is currently under a $25 million bond order for arrest for removal of the GPS device. He is due back in court September 23 for a trial on vandalism and trespassing charges from an incident at Soles's home back in February.
