An elderly American couple's Christmas plans went up in smoke after they were caught by police with a giant stash of pot - which they said they planned to give as gifts.

An 80-year-old Lake County man and his wife road tripping to the East Coast were arrested in Nebraska on suspicion of hauling about 60 pounds of cannabis in the vehicle, according to sheriff's officials. Paul Vrbka told the Times the Jirons' Toyota Tacoma was going over the center line on Interstate 80 and the driver failed to signal.

Dundee, the York County drugs dog, was called in and he found 60 bags of weed in the auto as well as concentrated THC. Barbara Jiron was cited in the case but was not jailed "due to some medical issues", Vrbka told the Times.
