A 44 year old California man, arrested in July by MPD, after a local business owner entered his shop, to find the stranger holding his cash register, received an 8 year prison sentence, Tuesday, in Drew County Circuit Court.
Tony Glynn Irons, originally told the district judge 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 at theat time out of California, was charged with commercial burglary, possession of a controlled substance, and 2nd degree criminal mischief, in July.
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 also told the district court that the controlled substance he was charged with possession of was “medical marijuana” for pain.
Irons told Circuit Judge Bynum Gibson, Tuesday, that he only broke into the store to get an Arkansas Razorback shirt.
No explanation was given as to why the cash register was in his hands.
