Son Of Suspect In Attempted Murder Joins Mom In Jail

Posted Updated

ROXBORO, N.C. — The Person County Jail has confirmed that 30-year-old Jeffrey Strickland -- the son of a woman accused of shooting a state trooper's estranged wife -- is being held on $25,000 bond in the same jail as his mother.

Strickland is charged with two counts of obtaining property under false pretenses, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, misdemeanor larceny and felony conspiracy.

He is accused of breaking into the home of Trooper Bobby Regan at 5600 Durham Road in Roxboro sometime in the past several days. He is accused of stealing checks in his mother's name and then using some of them around town.

Strickland's mother, Linda Lee, is being held in the Person County Jail under $1 million bond. She is charged with the attempted murder of Regan's wife, Daneille.

Roxboro police allege Regan was living with Lee while he was separated from his wife. But Regan's attorney, Wallace Bradsher Jr., said that is not true.

"He did move into a house, 5600 Old Durham Road, that Linda Lee had lived in," Bradsher said. "However, she vacated that home."
