Two of the three, who are 45 and 48 years old, are from Happy Valley-Goose Bay. They were arrested Nov. 9 and charged with several offences, including possession and trafficking of cocaine.

Police found over 100 grams of cocaine, along with drug trafficking paraphernalia and $7,000 in cash, according to a media release issued by the RCMP Friday.

The men are in custody and will appear in court Nov. 10.
