The latest outcome of two undercover drug probes in Hollywood, Florida resulted in the arrest of two cousins, the confiscation of cocaine, marijuana, firearms and the discovery of $79,000 cash concealed inside of a washing machine.

The bust that was announced by law enforcement on Tuesday took place the day before after a five-month investigation was carried out with the help of the federal DEA and Miramar police.

Juan Diego Roca, 24, and his cousin, Carlos B. Ramos, 26, were arrested on multiple drug charges, The Sun-Sentinel reported.

Roca is in custody on bonds equaling $328,000, and Ramos is in jail on $46,000 bond.

While seizing 181 grams of cocaine and roughly 1.5 pounds of marijuana, officers also discovered four firearms — including an AK-47 — and $79,000.

Earlier on Tuesday, Hollywood authorities revealed the arrest of five people after a four-month undercover probe. In that case, 20 grams of cocaine, a little less than one pound of marijuana, pills and a stolen handgun were seized.
