Two Youngstown men are in jail after members of the Youngstown Police Vice Unit say they arrested them with drugs including fentanyl and heroin, as well as $11,692 in cash.

When police arrived at 427 Emerson Street Wednesday afternoon with a search warrant, officers say they spotted Rosco Burkes, 45, and Victor Green, 48, getting into a car.

Officers say a search of the car, the home, and the men's pockets turned up bags of powdered cocaine, heroin, fentanyl and marijuana, as well as Oxycodone and Hydrocodone pills.

The DEA says Fentanyl can be 50 to 100 times more powerful than heroin and has been blamed for a rising number of overdoses in the country.

According to the police report, Green was carrying $10,781 in his pocket. Burke had $571 and another $350 was found inside the car.

Both men were booked into the county jail on drug possession charges where they await court hearings.
