Sheriff deputies in York, Nebraska arrested an elderly couple driving cross-country with 60 lbs of marijuana which the elderly pair said was intended for Christmas gifts.

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 said the marijuana was for Christmas presents", Lt. Paul Vrbka of the York County Sheriff's Department told the York News-Times. 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.

During the traffic stop, deputies noticed a strong scent of the sticky-icky emanating from the Toyota Tacoma. Multiple containers of concentrated THC also were found, officials said.

The Sheriff's Office said the estimated value of the marijuana found in boxes inside the pickup's truck topper was $336,000. Barbara was not arrested, but Patrick was.

Patrick Jiron was charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and no drug stamp - all felonies - while his wife received a citation.
