Wednesday brought new information about a Tabor City teen with ties to Senator RC Soles. Most recently, 17-year-old Allen Strickland was arrested for leading police on a high-speed chase. After posting a $500,000 bond, Strickland was arrested for violating his house arrest and the bond was revoked. On Friday, a district judge raised Strickland’s bond to one million dollars, but that was rescinded because the case is in superior court, which means Strickland must appear before a superior court judge. The next superior court hearing in Whiteville is October seventh. As for Strickland’s financial status, despite owning a home and Corvette purchased with money from Senator Soles and posting $600,000 in bonds, Strickland says he's indigent and asked for a court appointed attorney. That claim is under investigation.
