A Halifax man is facing drug charges after police searched two homes in Halifax last week.

Police say they searched an apartment building on Dartmouth's Victoria Road on Boxing Day, at around 7 p.m. and found 80 kilograms of marijuana.

Later that night police searched an apartment on Hollis Street where they seized more drugs and cash, as well as drug paraphernalia and a number of cell phones.

Monday morning, a 29-year-old suspect turned himself into police. He was in court Monday to face two counts of trafficking in marijuana and one count of possession of cocaine
