Two men were arrested Sunday after Maryland State Police troopers found weapons, drugs and cash in their vehicle during a traffic stop.

According to an incident report, the arrest occurred about 5 p.m. on Interstate 70 in Frederick County after officers pulled over a Toyota Corolla for a traffic violation.

The troopers conducting the stop smelled what they believed to be marijuana when they approached the vehicle and found probable cause to search it. Officers found a loaded Smith and Wesson .22 caliber revolver, a Smith and Wesson 9mm semiautomatic handgun, 8.9 grams of cocaine, 8.9 grams of marijuana and $14,000, the report said.

Efrain Torres-Eusebio, 21 and his passenger Jose Alberto Santiago-Miguel, 20, were charged with multiple weapons and drug charges.

Police said they were assisted by U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
