The dismembered bodies of two men were found buried in trash bags at a house in Temixco, a city in the central Mexican state of Morelos, prosecutors said.

Two assault rifles - an AR-15 and an AK-47 - a .38-caliber revolver, four ammunition clips for an AK-47 and ammunition were found buried near the bodies, the Morelos Attorney General's Office said in a statement.

Police also found a package containing approximately one kilo of marijuana, a bullet-proof vest and a ski mask on the property, the AG's office said.

A voter identification card belonging to someone named Roger Arizmendi Adan Jesus was found on the property, but it is not clear if it belonged to one of the victims, the AG's office said.

Morelos has been the scene in recent years of bloody clashes between rival drug cartels.

The Familia Michoacana, Los Zetas, Pacifico Sur, Sinaloa and Gulf cartels all operate in the state, officials say.

Over the weekend, 49 mutilated bodies were found on the side of a highway near Cadereyta, a city in the northern state of Nuevo Leon.

The bodies of the victims, six of whom were women, were dumped Sunday on the shoulder of the highway to Reynosa, a city in the neighboring state of Tamaulipas.

Some of the bodies were stuffed into black plastic trash bags while others were left uncovered.

The bodies were found at kilometer 47 of the highway to Reynosa near the exit to San Juan, a town in Nuevo Leon.

About 50,000 people have died in Mexico's drug war since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderon declared war on the country's powerful cartels, sending soldiers into the streets to fight criminals.
