Elderly couple told cops 60 pounds of marijuana was for 'Christmas presents'


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 auto. Assisted by a dog from the canine unit, officers found 60 pounds of weed and multiple containers of concentrated THC in the back of the truck.

"Either the senior citizens have a lot of friends or they were really feeling the gift of giving this year, because they swear that the $336,000 worth of weed was all going to get wrapped up as Christmas gifts", snarked Vice.

Deputies searched the vehicle after smelling the strong odor of raw marijuana and found roughly 60 pounds of it, with an estimated street value of more than $300,000, the department said in a statement. They were cited on charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and for not having a drug tax stamp.




Christmas may be a little less mellow for a few households this year as a California duo was arrested in Nebraska and charged with felony drug possession.

Patrick was arrested and booked into the York County Jail. No set court date for the Jirons has yet been reported. That's according to the local newspaper, the News-Times. The state, like many in the US, has not decriminalized marijuana for either medical or recreational use. They were pulled over earlier this week for crossing the center line without signaling.

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