Five men face drug charges after two traffic stops last Friday. The first car was stopped at about 3:30 p.m. after Halifax Regional Police say an officer witnessed a drug transaction on Windmill Road.

Crack cocaine was seized, with charges laid against two men from North Preston. The second incident occurred later after police pulled over a vehicle on Novalea Drive. A 28-year-old from Dartmouth, a 21-year-old from Halifax, and a 20-year-old Truro man are facing charges.
