A man faces drug charges after an arrest last night in Dartmouth.
At 11:40 p.m., officers assigned to the East Quick Response Unit conducted a traffic stop in the 100 block of Windmill Road of a vehicle believed to be involved in the drug trade. The driver was arrested and a search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of a quantity of crack cocaine, cannabis resin, marijuana, cash and other items used in the sale of drugs.
Forty-seven-year-old Christopher James Charter faces three counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking. He is scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court today on these charges.
