Two men have been charged with trafficking fentanyl after a traffic stop Saturday in Brockton.

The State Police say members of the Troop D Community Action Team started a motor vehicle stop Saturday evening for a 2011 Nissan Altima with illegal window tint.

Troopers saw movement inside the vehicle and began to fear for their safety.

After troopers got the occupants out of the car, substances believed to be 14 grams of fentanyl and two grams of crack cocaine were found inside.

More than $1,700 in cash was found on the operator of the vehicle, 23-year-old Ayoub Boubit of Arlington.

Nearly $7,000 was found on a passenger, 24-year-old Antonio Martins of Brockton.

Both men were arrested and have been charged with Fentanyl Trafficking and Conspiracy to Violate Drug Laws.

Martins was also charged with Possession to Distribute a Class B Drug, Subsequent Offense.

Both were held on $1,000 bail pending arraignment at Brockton District Court.
