The Lincoln Journal Star reports the 80-year-old Patrick Jiron and his 70-year-old wife were arrested Tuesday along Interstate-80 in northeast Nebraska.

In that case, the couple said the 60 pounds of marijuana found inside their truck by York County deputies was meant for Christmas presents. Investigators found about $18,000 in a duffel bag and a plastic bag and it all tested positive for marijuana. They were arrested last month along the same roadway - in the same vehicle - just two counties west. Their 42-year-old daughter, a resident of Vermont, was driving the auto, but was not arrested.

Although officers did not discover a sizable amount of marijuana, Barbara and Patrick Jiron were charged with possession of money associated with manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance, a Class IV felony in Nebraska.

Deputies also found an oversized garbage bag in the back of the truck that contained raw marijuana residue, and notes that suggested pot sales transactions, according to the police report. York County (Neb.) Attorney Chris Johnson said in late December he has no reason to believe Justin Jiron had been involved in his parent's legal troubles. Their daughter, who lives in Vermont, was given a warning, local media reported.

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.

The Lake County Sheriff's Narcotics Unit used this information to search the local residence of Patrick and Barbara Jiron in the 16000 block of Pueblo Trail. The couple said they were coming from California and planned to give the weed as Christmas presents to friends and family in Boston and Vermont.

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