Elderly Couple Who Said They'd Give Weed as Christmas Gifts Arrested Again

Share

Last month they were found with 60 pounds of marijuana the couple said was Christmas gifts.

In an earlier incident, the Jirons were arrested on December 19 with 60 pounds of assorted marijuana goods with a street value of over $300,000 police said.

Patrick Jiron, 80, and his wife, Barbara Jiron, 70, were passengers in a black Toyota when it was pulled over on Interstate 80 near Mile Marker 390 on Tuesday morning by the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office. "From what we were told, the vehicle smelled like marijuana and Lancaster County officers allegedly found a large amount of suspected drug buy money (cash) with a value of approximately $16,000".

Lancaster County sheriff's deputies stopped the couple's westbound pickup truck, saying it was following another vehicle too closely, said Sheriff's Sgt. Jason Mayo.

Police say they found $18,000 in cash and a 50-pound garbage bag that tested positive for cannabis residue.

The couple signed an abandonment form stating they don't claim the money as their own, Mayo said. A K9 detected marijuana, but deputies found no drugs. 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.

York County Sheriff's Lt. Paul Vrbka told the News-Times that Barbara Jiron was cited but was not jailed at that time "due to some medical issues".

On Dec. 19, 2017, the Jirons were stopped in nearby York County with some $300,000 worth of marijuana.

Barbara Jiron was arrested with her husband.

The Jirons, both of Clearlake Oaks, California, declined to comment Wednesday afternoon before a brief appearance in Lancaster County Court.

The elderly parents of a Vermont prosecutor caught in a massive drug bust before Christmas have been arrested again. The couple has pending charges for possessing marijuana with the intent to deliver. This time a female family member identified as Mariah Jiron was driving the auto.

Patrick Jiron was also arrested for a second time.
