Two people face drug charges after a traffic stop last night in Dartmouth.
At approximately 8:30 p.m. officers assigned to the East Quick Response Unit conducted a traffic stop in the 100 block of Albro Lake Road. A 26-year-old man and a 52-year-old woman were arrested without incident and a search of the truck resulted in the seizure of a quantity of crack cocaine and cash. Both individuals face a charge of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking and are scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court on July 18, 2012.
