State Police pulled the men over after they failed to signal and yield or stop. While searching the vehicle, a blue Dodge Caravan, they found 96 Percocet pills, three knives — with blade lengths between 3 and a half and 6 inches — nearly 40 grams of marijuana, and more than $3,600 in cash, police said.

Both men were arrested and transported to the State Police barracks in Revere for booking. Londono was charged with the unlawful possession of a Class D substance, possession with intent to distribute Class D drugs, carrying a dangerous weapon, and he was given a motor vehicle citation for failing to signal, yield/stop, and use of a motor vehicle without authority.

Justiniano was charged with the unlawful possession of a Class B substance, possession with intent to distribute Class B drugs, and carrying a dangerous weapon. He was also given a motor vehicle citation for failing to wear a seatbelt.

Both suspects are expected to be arraigned in Chelsea District Court Wednesday, police said.
