Elderly couple appear in Lancaster County Court for 2nd drug-related arrest

Bennie Garza | 12 January, 2018, 23:47

The couple of senior citizens who got busted in Nebraska with 60 pounds of marijuana are facing brand-new charges on suspicion of carrying drug money in the same state.

When the couple was arrested on December 19 in York County, the duo was traveling from California to Vermont with 60 pounds of marijuana.

Patrick Jiron, 80, and his 70-year-old wife, Barbara, were ordered to return to court next month to face a second set of charges stemming from a traffic stop Tuesday near Lincoln.

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.

Lancaster County sheriff's deputies stopped the couple's westbound pickup truck, saying it was following another vehicle too closely, said Sheriff's Sgt. Jason Mayo.

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.

"It's my understanding that they were stopped, in the same vehicle we caught them in (a Toyota Tacoma), again on Interstate 80", Lt. Vrbka said. Wagner said no drugs were found in the vehicle. A hearing for Barbara Jiron in York County was postponed until January 17, when her husband also is scheduled to appear.

The York County Sheriff's Office said the estimated value of the marijuana found in boxes inside the pickup's truck topper was $336,000. En route to Vermont, the Jirons told police they were unaware it was illegal to transport marijuana through Nebraska and they were planning to give the drug as Christmas presents.

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.

The Jirons are scheduled to appear in Lancaster County Court on Wednesday, Mayo said. This time a female family member identified as Mariah Jiron was driving the vehicle.

Patrick Jiron posted 10 percent of his $100,000 bail in York County, according to court records.
