LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two California men were arrested Thursday after police say they found more than 100 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop. 

According to the arrest report, police stopped a car that appeared to be drifting into the "fog line" in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 64 near the 16 milemarker. Police say the driver, 26-year-old Cain Soto-Guzman, did not have a driver's license. 

After a K9 indicated the presence of drugs in the vehicle, police searched it and found "close to 100 pounds of marijuana concealed both in a suitcase and in the trunk, and in the spare tire compartment" of the vehicle.

Police say they also found a small amount of cocaine in a jacket pocket, and suspected meth hidden in folded currency under the seat of the passenger, 19-year-old Ulises Soto. 

Police say Soto-Guzman admitted the two were bringing the marijuana from California to Louisville. 

Soto is charged with trafficking in marijuana over five pounds, and possession of a controlled substance. Soto-Guzman is charged with possession of a controlled substance, trafficking in marijuana, careless driving, and driving without a license. Bonds for both men were set at $25,000.
