Photo provided by the York County, Nebraska sheriff's department shows the marijuana recovered from a truck driven by Patrick and Barbara Jiron of Clearlake Oaks, California, during a traffic stop. They were simply spreading holiday cheer, they told authorities.

The couple were stopped Tuesday on Interstate 80 near the Bradshaw exit after York County sheriff's deputies saw their 2016 Toyota Tacoma drive over the center line.

That's what they told police officers anyway, when they were busted with the drugs during a routine traffic stop in Nebraska, according to WSMV. Police immediately noticed the "strong odor of raw marijuana", the York News Times reports, and promptly found 60 (!) pounds and $336,000-worth ($336,000!) of pot in the vehicle.

Although Patrick and Barbara Jiron are 83 and 70, respectively, their age has not slowed down their passion for Christmas or cannabis.


Deputies asked the driver, Patrick Jiron, about the odor, and he admitted to having contraband in the truck and consented to a search of the vehicle.

Vrbka said the couple claims to not have known it was illegal to transport marijuana in the state of Nebraska. They said they were driving from California to Vermont.

The marijuana was seized and it is estimated that the street value is $336,000, according to Sgt. Vrbka.

The two now face felony charges of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. He posted bond and was released from jail.
