Elderly Couple Told Cops 60 Pounds of Marijuana Was for ‘Christmas Presents’

YORK, Neb. – 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.

Deputies pulled over 80-year-old Patrick Jiron and 83-year-old Barbara Jiron, both of Clearlake Oaks, California, after they noticed the couples’ vehicle crossing the center line and the driver turning without signaling, according to the York News-Times.

A strong smell of marijuana wafted from the Toyota Tacoma, and, with the help of a police dog, deputies found the roughly $330,000 worth of pot in the pickup, authorities said.

While being questioned, the couple told deputies they were headed to Vermont, and “the marijuana was for Christmas presents,” according to a police report.

Deputies took Patrick and Barbara Jiron into custody on felony charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and no drug stamp, according to the paper.

      If weed is legalized, then there better be a system set up to test motorist’s just like they do for alcohol.
      Are you listening USA.

    Wow!! You’ve saved us all!! Thank the Lord for your heroism!! I can now sleep easier knowing that I am safe from marijuana, and from 80 year olds!! You truly are the epitome of justice!! I don’t know how I would survive if people smoked weed , and 80 year olds weren’t behind bars!!

    Truth: you PIGS are a waste of tax dollars!! Way to make a harmless couple that’s in their 80’s die behind bars!! I hope you rot in hell!!

      “Pigs” until they save you sorry azz from a home invasion, a lunatic with a gun, or pull you from a burning automobile. You do the cause of legalization no good when you speak like that. By the way I am for legalization—but there are far better ways to do it than with hateful speech like yours. I only pray on this Christmas that you NEVER have to eat your words when a law enforcement officer saves your life.

    I would pay close attention to their driving before you decide marijuana is OK. Must be old hippies who only evolved into old stupid hippies. I think in most places these people would be called drug dealers with that quantity of sh** as Cheech and Chong used to call it. Maybe it was Cheech and Chong.

      They should, at the worst, face dui charges, but I can gaurantee you that “crossing the center line” and “failing to signal” are often used on vehicles with California plates traveling through Nebraska. Crossing the center line is a very difficult charge to defend against, unless you have a camera, and I bet the failure to signal was while they were pulling over. Ever notice in most valid dui cases that there is a description of erratic driving, speed changes, etc. If it is “crossing the center line” by itself, usually means it is bs.
