PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Two brothers are behind bars following a traffic stop that led to the discovery of hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, four guns and a copious amount of cocaine.

Eugene Holbert II, 34, and Jamar Holbert, 33, were pulled over Thursday near NE 90th and Sandy Boulevard and arrested. After the brothers were taken into custody, investigators with the Metro Gang Task Force served two warrants at the Cameo Motel on NE 82nd Ave. Two more warrants were served at a home at NE Alberta St. and another at a Northeast Portland storage unit.

In all, investigators seized more than $211,000, four handguns, more than 2.2 pounds of powder cocaine and around six ounces of crack cocaine.

Both men were booked into the Multnomah County Jail and face federal drug and firearm charges.
