(BLOOMFIELD) - 23-year-old Mark Irons of Jasonville was already facing three criminal cases, plus a petition to revoke a suspended sentence in a fourth case, when a theft charge was filed against him on Monday and yet another warrant issued for his arrest. He was booked into the Greene County Jail Tuesday night.
The Greene County Daily World reports that in his latest case, Irons is accused of stealing a bottle of Skyy Vodka, and some air duster, from the Walmart store in Linton on March 26.
According to the probable cause affidavit, the store's surveillance system shows Irons concealing the vodka and two cans of Ultra Duster canned air. Irons allegedly tried to hide the items inside the front of his sweatshirt then bypassed the checkouts and was attempting to leave the store through the front doors on the grocery side but was stopped and escorted back into the store by loss prevention personnel who then called police.
Irons was out on bond in the other cases when he was arrested for the theft. He was arrested in late April and charged with receiving stolen property. In that case, Irons is accused of selling a flat screen television and a DVD player that were reported missing in a home burglary.
In two other cases, Irons was accused of "busting through" the front door of one residence in Jasonville around 1:30 a.m., then going to another residence where he allegedly attempted to muscle his way through the front door, breaking windows and causing injury to a woman who was trying to hold the door shut. In one of those cases, Irons was charged with battery resulting in bodily injury and criminal mischief, and in the other, he was charged with residential entry.
Irons was convicted of resisting law enforcement in 2013, since this latest trouble, a petition has been filed in that case to revoke his suspended sentence.
