Grandparents arrested for 60 pounds of marijuana meant for Christmas gifts

Grandparents arrested for 60 pounds of marijuana meant for Christmas gifts

The two were subsequently arrested and remain in custody at the York County Jail on charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver, as well as having no drug tax stamp. They were simply spreading holiday cheer, they told authorities.

Patrick Jiron, 80, and his wife Barbara, 83, were driving from California to Boston, Mass. and Vermont when they were pulled over Tuesday by sheriff deputies in York County, the outlet said, citing the York News-Times.

After the stop, deputies said they smelled marijuana coming from the pickup.

"They said the marijuana was for Christmas presents", Lieutenant Paul Vrbka from York County reported.

They conducted a search, and inside the truck's topper, found approximately 60 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of more than $300,000.

They also found what the department described in a statement as "multiple" containers of concentrated THC, the chemical compound found in cannabis that causes a euphoric high. No set court date for the Jirons has yet been reported.

Deputies allegedly saw the Jirons' Toyota Tacoma going over the center line with the driver failing to signal, authorities told the newspaper.

Don't drive around 60 pounds worth of marijuana in a state where it's illegal.

In California, it is legal to possess up to 28 1/2 grams of marijuana for recreational use.

These options may not be quite as impressive as $336,000 of raw weed, but hey, it's the thought that counts.
