Garrett Selleys: Xanax Makes Me Want to Burglarize Cars

According to the medical website drugs.com, some of the side effects of Xanax include decreased sexual desire or ability, diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, light-headedness, nausea, tiredness, and weight changes.

One of the more severe side effects (as you can see in the mugshot to the right) is red, swollen blistered, or peeling skin.

The unexplained desire to burglarize a car, however, is not on the list, but being under the influence of the drug is the explanation 23-year-old Garrett Selleys gave police as to why he broke into a car and stole an iPad earlier this year.

Selleys was arrested yesterday after police tracked an iPad stolen out of a vehicle in August to a pawn shop -- and then to Selleys.

According to court records obtained by New Times, on August 22, the victim reported his iPad -- worth about $700 -- was stolen out of his car.

Police tracked down the stolen iPad at the Mo' Money Pawn Shop at 1152 East Indian School Road in Phoenix, where transaction records showed that the iPad was sold by Selleys -- he used his Arizona driver's license as identification for the sale, and even signed the pawn receipt with his own name.

Yesterday, police tracked down Selleys at his girlfriend/co-defendant's house. When the cops dropped by, Selleys and his girlfriend, 22-year-old Brittany Joann Reppert, were in possession of seven grams of heroin, syringes, baggies, and a scale.

The couple admitted to police that they'd done heroin and snorted bath salts the night before. Then Selleys told police about the August burglary.

According to Selleys, he and a friend, "Jack," were walking late at night near the victim's house when they broke into the unlocked car and took the iPad.

The two went back to Jack's place to sleep, and in the morning Selleys took the iPad to the pawn shop, where he hawked the device to get money for drugs.

When asked why he stole the iPad, Selleys told police he was under the influence of Xanax. When he's on Xanax, he explained to police, the drug makes him want to break into cars.

Selleys -- an admitted drug addict who's currently on probation -- was booked into jail on one count each of narcotic drug possession for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia, burglary, trafficking stolen property, and narcotic drug possession for use.

Reppert also was arrested on similar charges.

As a friendly reminder to not become a heroin addict, have a look below at the couple during what appear to be happier times (compliments of Reppert's Facebook page -- ironically, Reppert's favorite quote is "A friend will bail you out of jail... A best friend will be in the cell next to yours saying, damn that was fun!").

I never did understand how people get into all that crap knowing very well the consequences of drug abuse and what it does to your body, and life....I mean really.....has nobody seen the faces of meth billboards on freeways??? these 2 kids look like they came straight from one of them.....sad part too is that they have already spawned some poor child into that life.......very sad.....for the little kid I mean.

This is true ladies and gentlemen. I was taking xanax foe a while and i noticed that it gives me the lack of inhibition and a total calmness where I would otherwise be paranoid. this caused me to go on a bbq grill and lawn chair spree one night. other times i've gone into shoe stores and put two pairs of shoes in my pants and walked out calm as can be. It's crazy and not worth getting locked up for.

 Hey Marcy, My names Mike. I just wanted to let you know that I love what great insight you have about this toppic, and your un-educated Opinions expressed, perfectly portray your run of the mill, ignorant American to a T! Congrats. You voted for Obama didn't you?  While we all appreciate your nessary, yet important imput on this matter, I think you need to realise that with your head up your ass, your brain lacks oxygen and I believe its impared your train of thought. Sweetie, I know it was a simpler time growing up way back yonder in em coverd waggon years, but its 2012 and shits a little bit different. They set off the "A" bomb, yet demand we don't get radiation. I would suggest you walk a mile Marcy but you wouldn't make it past the driveway. Addiction, its a disease St. Marcy, one that I suffer from, one I've lost alot of friends to and guess what it doesnt care if you went to public school or private, male or female, white black asian martian he man, she man or caveman, all that matters is that your human. Have you ever watched somebodys life leave their body Marcy? You ever have to be brought back to life your self. Lived on the streets? Have you ever had to over come an obstacle before all by your self? The Garretts of the world would have one less thing on their plate, if they didn't have to deal with the Marcy's of the world.

PLUS those are my friends so shut your mouth hoe, or ill be forced to lay down the pimp hand. Try to masterbate Marcy, get rid of some of that built up frustration, SAVINO OUT!

People make mistakes, but NO ONE deserves to die. I can't believe some of the crap I'm hearing on this stupid article. Brittany and Garrett are good people. They just got caught up. You all should be happy they're getting help now. Not sitting there behind a computer screen saying they should OD or kill themselves. Grow up and get a life. I love you Britt and Garr, and I am happy you both are getting the help you need. Don't for one second listen to all the negativity. Just focus on yourselves and getting better. Stay strong. You guys can do it.

THIS IS CRUEL. AFTER SEVERAL MONTHS CLEAN, I RELAPSED. THE NEIGHBOR WHO COMMENTED ON THIS PAGE SAYING WE TRAFFIC OUT OF THE HOME, THIS ISNT TRUE. THE SALES CHARGE WAS ONLY GIVEN BECAUSE THERE WAS A SCALE. THE CHARGES DIDNT EVEN STICK. AND WHOEVER THE OTHER FICK FUCK NEIGHBOR OF MINE IS THAT SAYS WE DONT SAY "HI", I COULD BASH ALL MY NEIGHBORS FROM HEARING ONE CONSTANTLY VERBALLY ABUSE HIS WIFE ON THE FRONT LAWN, TO ANOTHER WHO CALLS THE POLICE WHENEVER SOMEONE RAISES THEIR VOICE, TO ANOTHER WHOSE OWN SON IS SHOOTING UP HEROIN AS WELL. WE ALL HAVE PROBLEMS AND YOU CANT JUDGE ANYONE, BECAUSE WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE ANYWAYS? YES, I SCREWED UP, BUT I HAD BEEN CLEAN SINCE MID JULY AND THE BATH SALTS THAT WE BOUGHT ON THE INDIAN RESERVATION PRIOR GOING TO THE CASINO CAUSED ME SO SPEND SOME OF MY $500 IN WINNINGS ON WHAT WAS NOWHERE NEAR 7 GRAMS. IF I CAN ACCOMPLISH AS LONG AS I DID WITH ONE RELAPSE, I CAN DEFINITELY CONTINUE WITH IT AD MOVE ON TO MY ULTIMATE GOAL OF BECOMING A SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELOR SO THAT I CAN HELP OTHER PEOPLE OVERCOME THIS AWFUL DISEASE.

TALK TO ANYONE ADDICTED TO XANAX AND YOU WILL FIND THAT THEY WILL PROBABLY TELL YOU THAT XANAX REALLY DOES CAUSE YOU TO WANT TO STEAL, AND THE MORE CORRECT TERM TO DESCRIBE THAT FEELING OF  KLEPTOMANIA IS THE FEELING OF INVINCIBILITY --THINKING THAT YOU CAN DO ANYTHING AND GET AWAY WITH IT.

AND TO WHOMEVER SAID THAT I SHOULD JUST KILL MYSELF AND SAVE YOUR TAX DOLLARS... WOULD YOU RATHER BE LIVING NEXT DOOR TO A CHILD MOLESTER OR A RAPIST? WHAT ABOUT A KILLER? THERES MUCH WORSE THINGS I COULD BE DOING. SO BEFORE YOU GO JUDGING OTHER PEOPLES LIVES YOU DONT KNOW, MAKE SURE YOUR HANDS AREN'T DIRTY.

Does he possibly have small pox or herpes of the face? or a possible shotgun blast to his face or muratic acid burns? or a severe greasy junk food addiction?  young folks today are funny and goofy as shit and  mentally off and weird like they are from future sci fi movie of insane mentally bent future failures and weirdos of a future society like the mad max movies but only worse. if I didnt know better after reading this story I would think we are living in the inbred hillbilly regions  and hollars of backwoods kentuchy and appalachia. but we are here in sunny phoenix az instead and its like people like this that makes me think  certain  white trash arizona residents  are from the same dna gene pool as backeast hillbillys.

The real shame here is that Brittany has already bred and the taxpayers are going to be spending the entire 18 years of her baby's life supporting her offspring and given that deadend parents produce even deader-end kids, the taxpayers will be probably forking over even more after the kid turns 18.

And I cant tell that you are the type of person who judges people by what they look like (even though it may be hard not to in this instance) and also believe everything that they read online, which makes you not so bright either. You have no authority to judge anyone or give the decree that someone should kill themselves so check yourself and remind yourself who you are and where you stand in society, because I bet you I don't know who you are and have never seen your face to even offer you any kind of respect to any of your close minded opinions at all.

 THE BIG FAT BLACK GIRLS AND MEXICAN GIRLS IN JAIL ARE IN FOR FAR WORSE CHARGES THAN WHAT I WOULD HAVE BEEN IN FOR. YOU CANT JUDGE ME, YOU DONT KNOW ME. MY SON IS A BRIGHT YOUNG BOY AND YOU DONT EVEN KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ME. JUST SO ALL OF YOU KNOW, HEROIN WAS NOT TAKEN BY ME BY CHOICE. I WAS ONLY A WEED SMOKER, I DIDNT KNOW WHAT HEROIN EVEN WAS. I WAS TOLD THAT I WAS SMOKING HASH, WHICH IS A FORM OF WEED WITH A SO CALLED "FRIEND" IT WAS TOO LATE AFTER I FOUND OUT GARRETT AND I HAD BEEN GIVEN HEROIN. SO SCREW YOU.
