Florida Woman

Well, OK:

A 32-year-old woman was arrested on June 15 when she gathered her husbands guns to turn them over to the Lakeland Police Department.

According to Courtney Irbys arrest affidavit, she told police her husband had been taken to jail for trying to run over her with a car. Irby said she went to Joseph Irbys apartment on Village Center Drive in Lakeland and searched for the guns she knew he had.

When she told a Lakeland police officer she had the guns with her to turn them in, he replied, So are you telling me that you committed an armed burglary? and Irby answered, Yes, I am, but he wasnt going to turn them in, so I am doing it, according to reports.

    That’s just up the road from my house in Sebring. The sheriff there is a good old conservative boy strong on gun rights and hard on criminals and that’s what the dumb bitch is as she broke into his house and stole his shit while he was locked up instead of reporting the guns so that when he gets out he’d get hit with both a DV case and a restraining order…that is if the case that he is supposedly in jail for to begin with is legit.

    So, this vindictive bitch committed armed robbery, burglary, unlawful possession and probably unlawful transport of multiple firearms…

    When all she had to do was get a DV injunction..

    STUPID should hurt, and I hope she does 3-5 years…

    Take the guns first, due process later (TM)

    I agree with JTC. She seriously broke the law.

    What is more the accusations against the husband, or ex-husband, are still just that, accusations. That did not give her the right to burglary and theft.

    Tough nuts.

    I hate everyone in this story.

  7. Rick Says:

    And with hubby in jail and his guns in his home, why the sudden ache to turn them over to the police?

    Oh. The satisfaction of turning in his property to the police and raised middle finger to hubby.

    I get it now…

    Is it really armed burglary if you acquire arms from the burglary?

  9. wizardpc Says:

    TS: Yes, according to the statute.

  10. JTC Says:

    @TS, yes in fla at least, if you are committing a felony (burglary) and grab a gun in the process, you are then committing armed burglary and (if the burglary charge is upheld) become a felon in possession.

    Here’s another twist on that: if you have a felony record and are dumb enough to try to get rid of your gun (so you won’t be a felon in possession) by selling it to a dealer who documents the sale, that documented sale then becomes proof of a felon in possession and you will be charged with that secondary felony. Dude did just that in my pawn shop (I didn’t know he had an old felony at the time of the transaction), and my records became the proof that locked him up for two years on that new felony charge.

    @Jerry Gibbs, as I understand it, FLO-RI-DA woman here (and presumably her estranged husband) are Ohio transplants…as are many of our dumbest criminals, not that we don’t already have plenty native ones our own damn selves.

    Losers from everywhere flock to flahrda, but for some reason crap tons of ’em come from the Buckeye state.,

    My little story on the felon in possession thing remembered me that I wrote a bit about it at the Old Dead Blog about eleven years ago…

    Note the connection at the end to the little 380’s discussed here recently, and my dislike at the time for the Glock clone phenomenon. Things change.
