Cops: Elderly couple said bags of weed were Christmas gifts

Cops: Elderly couple said bags of weed were Christmas gifts”

The couple, Patrick Jiron, 80, and Barbara Jiron, 83, were in the process of driving cross country, telling police they were from Clearlake Oaks, California but were passing Nebraska on their way to Vermont.

The sheriff's deputies told the York News-Times that they pulled over a pickup when it drove over the center line and the driver failed to signal.

Nebraska officers arrested a couple in their eighties after finding 60 pounds of marijuana in their truck during a traffic stop, according to the York County Sheriff's Department. She was not jailed, however, because of medical issues, the York County Sheriff's Office said. Police immediately noticed the "strong odor of raw marijuana", the York News Times reports, and promptly found 60 (!) pounds and $336,000-worth ($336,000!) of pot in the vehicle. So did Dundee, the county's canine unit, who was pulled in to see if there was evidence for a probable cause search, since the marijuana wasn't immediately visible, according to the York News-Times.

A Sheriff's Department in Nebraska was in for a surprise when they stopped an elderly couple for a traffic violation.

When asked about the Jirons' custody status by the Washington Post, authorities simply replied, "they're not here".

Vrbka said the couple claims to not have known it was illegal to transport marijuana in the state of Nebraska. Patrick has since been released on bond.
