A 48-year-old Gaetzbrook man is facing several charges after police seized drugs from a home on Haven Lane.

Halifax RCMP say they responded to a 911 call at the residence at 3:10 p.m. on Tuesday, with the man telling officers the call must have resulted from phone problems.

Police say an officer on scene could then smell and later saw marijuana inside.

The man was then arrested and a subsequent search by police resulted in 34 marijuana plants being seized, along with 50 grams of marijuana, 50 Oxycontin pills, two hand-held digital scales and a Taser.
