Elderly couple busted with 60 pounds of marijuana in pickup

Elderly couple busted with 60 pounds of marijuana in pickup

However, police say 80-year-old Patrick Jiron and his 83-year-old wife Barbara Jiron won't be filling stockings with holiday cheer this year.

"They said the marijuana was for Christmas presents", Lt. Paul Vrbka told the York News-Times.

With that being said, these two geezers from California who told police the 60 pounds of weed they found in their truck was for Christmas presents have to be the greatest grandparents in the history of mankind. During the traffic stop, the deputies smelled raw marijuana and asked the driver about the odor.

Vrbka added the pot had a street value of around $336,000 and said the couple was charged with "felony suspicion of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and no drug tax stamp".

After Patrick Jiron, 80, admitted to having marijuana, the deputies performed a search with the help of a drug canine. That's when deputies found the cannabis, along with several containers of concentrated THC.

According to a report from NPR, they were heading to Boston and Vermont.

According to The Washington Post, marijuana is not legal in the state of Nebraska.

Vrbka said the couple claims to not have known it was illegal to transport marijuana in the state of Nebraska.
