Drug trafficking charges laid against Halifax man

Drug trafficking charges have been laid after an investigation by members of the General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division.

On February 21, 2016 at 2:01 p.m. police responded to a residence in the 5000 block of Macara Street in Halifax in relation to a report of a 16-year-old girl in medical distress. The girl was pronounced deceased at the scene and an investigation into the circumstances surrounding her death was conducted.

Through the course of the death investigation, investigators determined there was evidence to lay drug trafficking charges. On February 26, 2018 at 5:30 a.m. police arrested a 21-year-old man at the Central Nova Scotia Correctional Facility in Dartmouth without incident.
