Two men were arrested after a raid on a Malden home Wednesday turned up illicit drugs, fake credit cards, and nearly $10,000 in cash, State Police said.
Jesse Desravines, 32 of Miami, and Joshua Ezewuzie, 25 of Malden, are facing multiple drug and credit card fraud charges after a search warrant was executed at about 9:15 a.m. on the house where both lived, State Police said in a press release Thursday night.
The address of the home was not disclosed.
Authorities seized 48.7 ounces of marijuana, 36 Alprazolam pills, 428 Oxycodone pills, undisclosed amounts of cocaine and heroin, as well as the fake credits cards, driver’s licenses, and $9,400 in cash, the release said.
Malden and Boston police, and federal agents participated in the search that followed an investigation that started last fall, according to State Police.
Desravines and Ezewuzie were denied bail and held at the State Police barracks at Logan Airport.
They were due to be arraigned in Malden District Court.
Details of the arraignment were not immediately available Thursday night.
