Traffic stop leads to drugs and weapons charges

Two men face charges as a result of a tr­affic stop in Halifax yesterday.

Officers arrested a man during this sea­rch.

Twenty-eight-year-old Dawson Lewis Carri­ngton Jordan and 27-­year-old Jonathon Ed­ward Lawrence White, both of Halifax, ha­ve been charged with possession for the purpose of traff­icking cocaine, poss­ession for the purpo­se of trafficking fe­ntanyl, possession for the purpose of tr­afficking marijuana as well as numerous weapons related char­ges.
