Deputies: Elderly couple busted with pot Christmas presents arrested again

Patrick Jiron

An elderly California couple whose pickup truck contained 60 pounds of marijuana that they said was intended as Christmas gifts were arrested again Tuesday on drug-trafficking charges.

Investigators say a Tuesday search of the truck turned up 18-thousand dollars in cash.

The couple signed an abandonment form stating they don't claim the money as their own, Mayo said. En route to Vermont, the Jirons told police they were unaware it was illegal to transport marijuana through Nebraska and they were planning to give the drug as Christmas presents. The wire service reports, "State's Attorney Sarah George has said Justin Jiron is not connected to his parents' alleged crime other than by relation".

A large black bag was also found which allegedly tested positive for cannabis residue.

County Judge John Freudenberg ordered Barbara Jiron to return to court on February 1 on the drug money charge after appointing an attorney for her. A K9 detected marijuana, but deputies found no drugs.

Barbara and Patrick Jiron were cited and lodged in the Lancaster County Jail for possession of money while violating Statute 28-416.17.

It should be noted that Barbara Jiron's first court appearance in York County Court is scheduled for today (Wednesday, Jan. 10) at 2 p.m. The two were arrested in the same vehicle and along the same roadway in Nebraska just last month.
