Leesburg -- Leesburg Police confiscated dozens of pounds of genuine and fake gold, jewelry, rolex watches, and cash.

Take a look at some of the dozens of bags of gold chains, rings, and bracelets seized from a car stopped at the Leesburg Post Office. They also found gold bars, watches, and three thousand dollars in cash. Police arrested two men.

 Captain Chris Prokesh said "they had the jewelers tools to engrave the items 14 karat or 24 karat. Most of the items, as best we can tell so far, are costume jewelry."

46-year old Jeffrey Moore of Arkansas and 46-year old Alfred Carr of Pennsylvania are charged with 43 counts of forgery, counterfeiting, and deceptive business practices.

They were selling the gold jewelry and sending the money back to a Florida pawn business.
