Two men made a not-so-subtle attempt to avoid police on Sunday night.

Halifax RCMP officers were watching traffic on Cow Bay Road near Rainbow Haven Beach when they say they noticed one vehicle trying to turn around to avoid them.

Police officers stopped the vehicle on Bissett Road and allege they smelled marijuana smoke coming out of the driver’s side window.

Police say they seized 41 grams of marijuana, cash, a receipt book and a large bag with marijuana plant branches in it.

Two men, 18 and 19 years old, were arrested. The 19-year-old driver was charged with trafficking and the 18-year-old passenger was charged with possession.
