Grandparents who claimed pot was meant for Christmas gifts arrested again

Parents of Vt. Prosecutor Busted Again on Drug Charges

Parents of Vt. Prosecutor Busted Again on Drug Charges

A hearing for Barbara Jiron in York County was postponed until January 17, when her husband also is scheduled to appear.

The couple, from Clearlake Oaks, California, was arrested on suspicion of possessing drug money, the World-Herald reported.

Deputies arrested Patrick Jiron, 80, and his wife, Barbara Jiron, 70, after they were stopped while riding in a pickup truck that was stopped for driving too closely to another vehicle in Lancaster County, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

LSO Sergeant Jason Mayo said the vehicle, driven by the Jiron's daughter, was pulled over at about 9:40 a.m. Tuesday.

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

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 couple signed an abandonment form stating they don't claim the money as their own, Mayo said. The wire service reports, "State's Attorney Sarah George has said Justin Jiron is not connected to his parents' alleged crime other than by relation". The pair told police that they were driving cross-country to deliver the pot as gifts for relatives and friends in Vermont and Boston. A K-9 officer detected the odor of narcotics on the auto and the search found about $17,000 in one duffel bag, which contained the marijuana residue.

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

The Jirons were arrested two counties over last month by deputies in with the York County Sheriff's Department.

They also found notes consistent with marijuana sales in the truck. This time a female family member identified as Mariah Jiron was driving the vehicle.

The couple are scheduled to appear in York County Court on January 17.

"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. Paul Vrbka with the York County Sheriff's Department told The York News-Times.
