New Castle Police say two Detroit men are facing charges after police pulled over their vehicle and found drugs, guns, and more than $3,000 in cash. 

According to New Castle Police, patrol officers and the Street Crimes Unit pulled over the vehicle on Tuesday near Jefferson Street. 

Officers say they were able to detect the presence of narcotics in the car and immediately began a search.

The two men in the car, both reportedly from Detroit, were identified as 24-year-old Darius Lee and 22-year-old Andre Lee.
