ALPINE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Two men were arrested after police said a traffic stop in New Jersey led to the discovery of two indoor marijuana farms in New York City.

On Tuesday, officers pulled over Robert Sciolo, 39, and Terrance Quinn, 48, on the Palisades Interstate Parkway in Alpine. The two men were arrested after officers found marijuana and counterfeit DVDs in the vehicle, according to authorities.

During subsequent raids, police said they found more than 600 prescription pills and 38 large marijuana plants at Quinn’s home in the Bronx. Forty additional marijuana plants were discovered during a search in Maybrook, New York, authorities said.

Sciolo and Quinn now face several drug charges.
