A 31-year-old man is facing charges after a large amount of drugs and cash was seized after a search of a home in Eastern Passage.

Halifax RCMP say officers conducted the search on Kilgar Court Wednesday and seized eight-and-a-half pounds of marijuana and about $10,000 in cash.

Police say the Eastern Passage man, whose name hasn’t been released, is being charged under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. He will be appearing in court at a later date.
