Elderly couple busted with 60 pounds of marijuana in pickup

Department

An elderly couple in Nebraska seemed to have stress relief on the mind when they were busted by police at a traffic stop with boxes and boxes of some very unusual Christmas shipping-high-grade marijuana.

Deputies with the York County Sheriff's Office say after stopping a pickup truck for drive over the center line and failing to signal, deputies noticed a strong smell of raw marijuana. When questioned about the odor, the driver confessed to possessing contraband and consented to a search of his truck, leading authorities to the Jirons' 60-lb stash. Assisted by a dog from the canine unit, officers found 60 pounds of weed and multiple containers of concentrated THC in the back of the truck.

The marijuana was seized and it is estimated that the street value is $336,000, according to Sgt. Vrbka. And while the Jirons' home state of California has legalized marijuana for adult recreational use beginning January 1, 2018, the couples' load of "Christmas presents" would still have gotten them into trouble had they been pulled over there.

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. Barbara was also cited, but not jailed.

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

The couple, of Clearlake Oaks, California, told police they were transporting the marijuana to Vermont.
