Parents of Vt. Prosecutor Busted Again on Drug Charges

Contact with the couple raised the officer's suspicions, who ordered a drug-detecting dog deployed.

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.

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. The couple's daughter, 45-year-old Mariah Jiron, of Vermont, was driving.

Patrick and Barbara Jiron, who were passengers in the truck, did not give the deputy permission to search the vehicle, according to the report. The couple was pulled over on Tuesday morning for tailgating after a sheriff's deputy determined that "reasonable, articulable suspicion was obtained that criminal activity was afoot".

Detectives believe the Jirons are traveling back to California after posting bail in Nebraska in an incident this week where they were allegedly found with $18,000 in cash, raw marijuana and evidence of sales. The cash allegedly tested positive for marijuana residue.

Barbara Jiron was arrested with her husband. The two allegedly told police they were headed for Vermont and meant to give the drugs as Christmas presents. Their 42-year-old daughter, a resident of Vermont, was driving the auto, but was not arrested.

The Jirons are scheduled to appear in Lancaster County Court on Wednesday, Mayo said.

"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 said, casting doubt on the couple's Christmas story.

The elderly parents of a Vermont prosecutor caught in a massive drug bust before Christmas have been arrested again.

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

In York County, both were charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and having no drug tax stamp.
