'Christmas pot' couple stopped again outside Lincoln

Patrick Jiron

A Lancaster County sheriff's deputy stopped the truck they were riding in and eventually had a drug dog sniff the vehicle after developing suspicion that "criminal activity was afoot", Sheriff Terry Wagner said.

A deputy asked their driver, 42-year-old Mariah Jiron, to sit in his cruiser.

The K-9 indicated the presence of marijuana, and a subsequent search unveiled $18,000 in cash.

The Jirons were arrested two counties over last month by deputies in with the York County Sheriff's Department. A K-9 officer detected the odor of narcotics on the vehicle and the search found about $17,000 in one duffel bag, which contained the marijuana residue. "From what we were told, the vehicle smelled like marijuana and Lancaster County officers allegedly found a large amount of suspected drug buy money (cash) with a value of approximately $16,000".

After court, Lincoln attorney John Berry, who represents Patrick Jiron in both cases, said he didn't know enough yet about the Lancaster County stop to comment further on it or how Jiron will plead.

At the court hearing, Barbara Jiron carried a portable oxygen respirator and wore a nose clip attached by a tube to the device.


They also found notes consistent with marijuana sales in the truck. At the time, they told police they were on their way to Vermont to distribute the drugs to friends and family as Christmas presents.

Patrick Jiron, 80, and his wife, Barbara Jiron, 70, were each released from the Lancaster County jail on $2,500 bond Tuesday afternoon.

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

The Jirons are due to appear in York County Court next week to face those charges, according to the Journal Star. Their daughter, who lives in Vermont, was given a warning, local media reported.

The arrest Tuesday comes just more than three weeks after the couple was arrested December 19 with 60 pounds of marijuana in their Toyota Tacoma.

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