Commercial Burglar, with Medical Marijuana & Pills, Doesn’t Remember Crime or ArrestJuly 17th, 2012 by Joe Burgess
Tony Glynn Irons, currently from Monticello, told District Judge Ken Harper that he had taken a “#10 Valium and a Xanax” together for the first time, and didn’t remember anything else until he woke up in jail.
Irons, on parole out of California, is charged with commercial burglary, possession of a controlled substance, and 2nd degree criminal mischief.
After Jerry James of James Quick Print came into the business to find Iron in the back, Irons fled into a dark room, where he climbed into the ceiling, until police arrived. When he was climbing down, he fell through a light fixture.
Irons told the court that the controlled substance he was charged with possession of was “medical marijuana” for pain, and that he “lost my cell phone at the crime scene,” and needed it back to get his numbers.

July 14, 2012
When Jerry James of James Quick Print opened the front door, he saw someone standing in the back of the building. The suspect ran into a room in the rear of the business, and Mr. James shut the door on the suspect. Mr. James called 911 from his cell phone and stood by the door until officers arrived.
The suspect, Tony Glynn Irons, age 44, currently from Monticello, then made his way into the ceiling of the building, but was not able to escape.
As he was trying to climb down and surrender to police, he stepped on a light and came crashing through, where he was captured by the police.
Tony Irons has a very long criminal history to include several burglary, fraud and narcotics convictions from California, and is currently being held at the Drew County Detention Center with no bond until Monday.
