Police have arrested two men following a motor vehicle collision that occurred earlier this morning in Halifax.
At 5:48 a.m., officers responded to the intersection of Lynch Street and Duffus Street after a report that a vehicle hit the curb.

The K-9 unit also located a handgun outside the residence during the track for the occupants of the vehicle.
An 18-year-old man and a 25-year-old man, both from Halifax, are currently in police custody and being questioned in relation to this incident. The matter remains under investigation and charges are anticipated.
