LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Three Cuban nationals arrested during a wild drug bust were in court Saturday morning.

Carlos Cardova-Aleman, Inido Cepro-Aldona and Cesar Baldes-Bejerano were arrested Thursday.

Officers got a tip about a drug deal happening at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Jeffersontown on Thursday. Police said the three men carried in trash bags full of clothes that were packaged to look like marijuana. Turns out, one of the bags had packages of real drugs inside it, according to investigators.

Police said one of the men also had a gun, a fake police badge and zip ties made into handcuffs.

The group allegedly is tied to a larger crime ring that police said was responsible for stealing cars, staging accidents, committing fraud and carrying out street robberies.

Charges against the suspects range from first degree burglary to impersonating a police officer, drug trafficking and trafficking within a thousand yards of a school.
