Police found drugs, guns, and burglary tools while investigating a group of people for rental car fraud at the Nashville Airport.

According to an affidavit from Metro Nashville Police, Donald Duncan and Ken Mendiola were arrested Wednesday night in a stolen car. 

Police said they found meth, valium, and five cell phones in the car. They also found a gun nearby they believe was thrown from the vehicle. 

Mendiola later told police he was paid $100 to drive the car from Paducah to Nashville International Airport. 

Back in May, a woman was arrested for fraudulently renting cars from Avis. In that case, police said they were still looking for three other women who stole cars that weekend.
