Marijuana for Christmas? Elderly Couple Arrested With 60 Pounds for Gifts


The married couple was driving around with 60 pounds of the loud, according to the York News Times. When officers said they smelled marijuana, the couple admitted they were carrying contraband.

A canine unit was called in and the dog alerted to the presence of a controlled substance, so deputies searched the vehicle and found the marijuana in boxes inside the bed of the truck.

Police say the marijuana had an estimated street value of over $300,000.

An update from the YNT explains Patrick was jailed on charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and having no drug tax stamp.

Although Patrick and Barbara Jiron are 83 and 70, respectively, their age has not slowed down their passion for Christmas or cannabis.
