Halifax Regional Police say two traffic stops late Wednesday resulted in charges being laid.
Police say at 5:17 p.m., they stopped a vehicle on Joseph Young Street, resulting in the driver leaving the vehicle and trying to walk away. Police say he was arrested when he refused to comply with commands to stop, and was then found to be in possession of a prohibited weapon and crack cocaine.
A 31-year-old Dartmouth man was in provincial court yesterday on charges of drug trafficking, possession of a weapon and breaching a weapons prohibition order.
About three hours later, police also stopped a vehicle at Exit 5 on Highway 111. Police say the driver became agitated and was arrested when a quantity of pills was located. A 42-year-old man is now scheduled to appear in court at a later date facing drug possession charges.
