Tuesday we told you 17-year-old Allen Strickland was in back in jail. He was held in lieu of a $500,000 bond after allegedly leading police on a chase in his Corvette, which he had no license to drive. Now we have learned Strickland has come up with the money to post that bond. Deputies tell us that Strickland is still in the Columbus County Jail, however, until they can get an electronic monitoring device to put him on house arrest. Strickland will not be able to go to his house, which was paid for by Senator RC Soles. Strickland must wear an ankle bracelet while he stays with a relative. Strickland said he will try to get a judge to remove the ankle bracelet. The SBI charged the Tabor City teen last week with setting that house on fire. He came up with the money to pay the bond resulting from that charge, but under advice from his lawyer, he declined to comment on how he paid the bond.
