Two arrested after car stolen outside Soles’s home, crashed

TABOR CITY, NC (WWAY) — Tabor City Police arrested two people over the weekend in connection with a chase that ended in a crash Saturday night, and the crime apparently started at a well-known address in town.

Investigators say the vehicle was stolen from outside former Sen. R.C. Soles’s home.

Christopher Byrd and Krystal Burgess are charged with larceny of a motor vehicle and fleeing to elude arrest.

According to police reports, an officer spotted a car that matched the description of the stolen car. When he put on his lights, the driver sped off and lost control of the car, crashing into a ditch.

The woman whose car was stolen said she and another man picked up Byrd, Burgess and Frankie and Danielle Jernigan at a motel and took them to Soles’s house to get $2,600 with the promise she would get $100.

Tabor City Police say they expect to make more arrests in this case.
