LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested two men after authorities say more than 100 "fraudulent" gift and credit cards and several pounds of drugs were found inside their home.

Yoemi Brache Perez, 41, and Reinso Herrera Lusvan, 39, were arrested Saturday at their home in the 1300 block of Cherry Blossom Drive, near Penile Road.

Official police records say police were called about a smell of marijuana. Police say Perez and Lusvan were allegedly smoking marijuana on the deck of their residence.

Police searched the home after receiving consent to conduct a search.

Investigators say detectives entered the home and noticed "a strong odor of marijuana." Authorities say a police dog alerted officers to marijuana that was packaged for sale in a bedroom closet.

Police say that in addition to the marijuana, "several bags containing suspected cocaine" were also found in the closet. Authorities also say a bag containing tar heroin was also found, as well as two digital scales. A large amount of money was found in the trunk of a car, according to police.

Authorities say they also located more than 100 gift and credit cards. Officials say the cards were "believed to be fraudulent" because a piece of equipment used to emboss cards was also located.

Perez and Lusvan each face several charges including engaging in organized crime, forgery, possession of a forgery device and embossing of a credit card. Both men also face multiple charges of trafficking in a controlled substance.

The men are scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
