Two men charged with manufacturing and selling heroin made their first court appearance Wednesday.

Police say Altime Coulter and Anthony Fashion were caught with 160 bags of ready-to-sell heroin and fifty grams of unprocessed heroin.

New Hanover County detectives also seized manufacturing equipment, including a coffee grinder, and a “thumbs up” stamp the men allegedly used to mark their drugs.

“Heroin coming into our county and our city, is just unacceptable and when you get the uncut or unprocessed, and you’ve got a couple of guys in a motel room, mixing it, all that is just a mixture for disaster,” said NHC Sheriff Ed McMahon.

Detectives believe the two men may have delivered large amounts of heroin from New York to New Hanover County in the past.

Both men are in the New Hanover County jail under a $100,000 secured bond.

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After posting a $500,000 bond, Strickland was arrested for violating his house arrest and the bond was revoked.

On Friday, a district judge raised Strickland’s bond to one million dollars, but that was rescinded because the case is in superior court, which means Strickland must appear before a superior court judge.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.
