Parents of Vt. Prosecutor Busted Again on Drug Charges

An elderly couple arrested last month after police said they claimed they had more than 60 pounds of marijuana in their vehicle to give out as Christmas gifts is facing new charges after being arrested Tuesday morning in Nebraska, according to multiple reports. They were arrested last month for carrying 60 pounds of marijuana that they claimed were Christmas gifts.

County Judge John Freudenberg ordered Barbara Jiron to return to court on February 1 on the drug money charge after appointing an attorney for her.

Deputies reportedly found most of the $18,000 they confiscated - it smelled strongly of marijuana, Mayo said - in a duffel bag in the cargo area.

The vehicle was traveling west from Vermont to Barbara and Patrick Jiron's home in California.

Deputies reported smelling "the odor of raw marijuana coming from the vehicle", reported.

The couple now faces multiple violations of California law related to marijuana cultivation and transportation, the Sheriff's Office said.

Patrick Jiron, 80, and Barbara Jiron, 70, were booked into the Lancaster County Jail.

"But now here we are, just weeks after we found them with all that high grade marijuana they said they planned to take to Vermont for Christmas gifts", Lt. Vrbka said.

It should be noted that Barbara Jiron's first court appearance in York County Court is scheduled for today (Wednesday, Jan. 10) at 2 p.m.

An attorney for Patrick Jiron told the newspaper he did not yet know how the couple would plead and he was looking closely at the case to make sure police did not execute an illegal search. Their 42-year-old daughter, a resident of Vermont, was driving the auto, but was not arrested.

In York County, both were charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver, a Class 2A felony, and having no drug tax stamp, a Class 4 felony.

The sheriff's department says the Jiron's were also driving the same Toyota pickup involved in their previous bust.

They were arrested then eventually released on bond and were due in court the following day.
