Deputies: Elderly couple busted with pot Christmas presents arrested again

Deputies arrested Patrick Jiron, 80, and his wife, Barbara Jiron, 70, after they were stopped while riding in a pickup truck that was stopped for driving too closely to another vehicle in Lancaster County, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

Investigators say a Tuesday search of the truck turned up 18-thousand dollars in cash. "A K-9 (service dog) was deployed and alerted to the presence of drugs". The two were arrested in the same vehicle and along the same roadway in Nebraska just last month.

Mayo told KOLN that the seized cash tested positive for marijuana residue, as did a 50-gallon trash bag found in the truck.

After court, Lincoln attorney John Berry, who represents Patrick Jiron in both cases, said he didn't know enough yet about the Lancaster County stop to comment further on it or how Jiron will plead.

Barbara Jiron was arrested with her husband.

Mariah Jiron, who is their daughter, was issued a warning. They told police the individually wrapped bags of cannabis, worth about $336,000, were Christmas gifts.

The two were detained and booked at the Lancaster County Jail for possession of money "used or meant to be used to facilitate a violation" of laws against controlled substances.

Their story took a twist when it later became public that their son, Justin Jiron, is a deputy state's attorney in Vermont.

U.S. auto sales drop in 2017
The GM plant in Oshawa is being repurposed to start producing GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverdo trucks starting this month. Volkswagen of America Inc. reported an 18.7% drop in sales in December, in spite of strong SUV results mentioned earlier.

Patrick Jiron posted 10 percent of his $100,000 bail in York County, according to court records. Authorities told the York News-Times they found almost 60 pounds of marijuana, worth an estimated $336,000, after making a traffic stop December 19 on Interstate 80 near Bradshaw.

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

The Jirons are facing felony charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and no drug tax stamp, as Nebraska requires marijuana dealers to purchase a drug tax stamp from its Department of Revenue as evidence that the state's drug tax has been paid.
