Vermont prosecutor's parents busted again in Nebraska

Vermont prosecutor's parents busted again in Nebraska

According to WPTZ-TV, 80-year-old Patrick Jiron and his 70-year-old wife, Barbara, were arrested on Tuesday morning on Interstate 80 in northeast Nebraska. The couple's daughter, 45-year-old Mariah Jiron, of Vermont, was driving.

The presence of marijuana was indicated in the vehicle and a subsequent search allegedly unveiled A$23,000 in cash, which tested positive for marijuana residue. They were arrested last month along the same roadway - in the same vehicle - just two counties west. 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.

A drug-sniffing dog then led police to the trunk, where they found most of the money in a duffel bag along with traces of marijuana, according to the sheriff's office.

The deputy asked the couple if he could search the truck, but he was denied.

Their son, Justin Jiron, is the chief deputy state's attorney for Chittenden County in Vermont. The wire service reports, "State's Attorney Sarah George has said Justin Jiron is not connected to his parents' alleged crime other than by relation".

Barbara Jiron was cited in the York County matter (not taken into custody due to reported health issues) and Patrick Jiron was arrested (he made bond shortly after and was released from jail).

The Jirons both are scheduled to appear in York County Court on January 17. Their daughter, who lives in Vermont, was given a warning, local media reported.

The Jirons are facing felony charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and no drug tax stamp, as Nebraska requires marijuana dealers to purchase a drug tax stamp from its Department of Revenue as evidence that the state's drug tax has been paid.

At the time of their arrest in York County, right before Christmas, investigators said the elderly couple told them they didn't know it was illegal to transport marijuana in Nebraska.

The sheriff's department says the Jiron's were also driving the same Toyota pickup involved in their previous bust.
