After speaking with the driver, the police officer arrested him, and acquired grounds to search the vehicle. In total, police seized over 6 pounds of marijuana, 148 grams of ‘Shatter’ and approximately 500 capsules of Cannabidiol, also known as hash oil. A large quantity of cash was also seized.

Christopher Enns, 33, has been charged with:

  • Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking (2 counts)
  • Possession of Proceeds of Crime over $5000
  • Breach of Conditions

Enns was held in custody following his arrest and is appearing in Dartmouth Provincial Court today. The investigation is ongoing.
