Grandparents who claimed pot was meant for Christmas gifts arrested again

Patrick Jiron

An elderly California couple who were arrested last month for carrying 60 pounds of marijuana in their truck to give out as Christmas presents were arrested again on Tuesday for suspicion of carrying drug money. Sixty pounds of marijuana valued at $336,000 was found, which the Jirons said they were planning to distribute to friends in Vermont and Boston as Christmas gifts.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner says the 80 year-old-man and his 70 year old wife were arrested this week on suspicion of carrying drug money.

Lancaster County sheriff's deputies stopped the couple's westbound pickup truck, saying it was following another vehicle too closely, said Sheriff's Sgt. Jason Mayo.

A search of the couple's 2016 Toyota Tacoma turned up a little over $18,000 in cash that "tested positive for a strong odor of marijuana", Mayo said. The two allegedly told police they were headed for Vermont and meant to give the drugs as Christmas presents.

The elderly parents of a Vermont prosecutor caught in a massive drug bust before Christmas have been arrested again.

Patrick and Barbara Jiron's son, Justin Jiron, is a deputy state attorney in Chittenden County, Vermont.

Wednesday, a judge appointed the Lancaster County Public Defender's Office to represent Barbara Jiron.

Barbara Jiron was cited in the York County matter (not taken into custody due to reported health issues) and Patrick Jiron was arrested (he made bond shortly after and was released from jail).

However, when using the built-in LTE modem and performing regular tasks, that number is expected to come down significantly. It features a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with support for Windows Hello .

The Jirons are scheduled to appear in Lancaster County Court on Wednesday, Mayo said. The two were arrested in the same vehicle and along the same roadway in Nebraska just last month. Their 42-year-old daughter, a resident of Vermont, was driving the vehicle, but was not arrested.

Stemming from the December incident, as NPR's Laurel Wamsley reported, the Jirons are facing "felony charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and no drug tax stamp".

The couple have separate hearings in York County Court next week, according to court records.
