Elderly Couple Arrested With $336K of Pot, Claims it Was Christmas Gifts

Elderly Couple Arrested With $336K of Pot, Claims it Was Christmas Gifts

An elderly couple there told the York County, Nebraska Sheriff's Department that some sixty pounds of pot they had in their possession was on its way to be distributed as "Christmas presents".

On Tuesday, York County sheriff's deputies discovered an unconventional Mr. and Mrs. Clause.

The police found 60 lbs. of marijuana as well as containers of concentrated THC, the chemical in marijuana that gets people high. Naturally with 60 pounds of the sticky icky onboard, their truck smelled like a Snoop Dogg concert, and the officers immediately grew suspicious that the elderly couple had some marijuana in their possession.

Imagine being pulled over by police, and having your Christmas presents taken away.

Patrick, 80, and Barbara Jiron, 70, were en route to Vermont from northern California when deputies said they noticed their Toyota Tacoma pickup truck crossing over the centerline with the driver failing to signal.

Though many states have legalized marijuana to varying degrees, Nebraska is not among them.

Mr. and Mrs. Jiron told the police they were traveling from their home state of California to Vermont, with a planned pit stop in Boston, and meant to distribute the drugs to family and friends as Christmas gifts. An attempt to legalise some medical uses for marijuana for seriously ill patients was introduced in the state in 2015, but blocked in the legislature.

Asked by the Washington Post if the couple were still in jail, the sheriff's department mysteriously said "they were not here" but did not provide a detailed explanation.
