Waterloo Regional Police say they have seized about 51 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $127,000 and 78 grams of cocaine worth $8,000 after executing two search warrants in Cambridge and Kitchener. 

Police say the homes searched were located at McMeekan Drive in Cambridge and Robert Ferrie Drive in Kitchener. A small amount of cash was also seized. 

The seizure is a significant one for the community, said Staff Sgt. Shaena Morris on Tuesday. 

"It speaks to the drug subculture that we have ongoing within our region," she said. 

A 30-year-old male and a 21-year-old male, both from Kitchener, face three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking a controlled substance.
