Searches Net $350,000 In Illegal Drugs

Two men are facing drug charges after large quantities of drugs were located during two searches over the weekend in Halifax and Bedford.
On the evening of November 28, officers assigned to the Drug Unit, assisted by the Guns and Gangs Unit, executed search warrants on two separate homes; one in the 2400 block of Creighton Street in Halifax and the other in the 200 block of Starboard Drive in Bedford.
 
As a result of the searches, officers seized a large quantity of cocaine and marijuana with a combined street value of over $350,000.00, approximately $100,000.00 in cash, cell phones, a bullet proof vest and ecstasy.
Thirty-seven-year-old Nathanial Andrew Robart of Bedford and 46-year-old Tony Curtis Thomas of Halifax were both arrested during the searches without incident and held in custody. They each face two counts of possession of drugs for the purposing of trafficking and one count of possession of drugs. They are expected to appear in Halifax Provincial Court later today.
