The man is scheduled to appear in Dartmouth provincial court on Thursday charged with various drug and gun-related charges.

As a result of that search, Halifax Regional Police also searched another residence in the 0 to 100 block of Braeside Court in Dartmouth on Thursday.

A conductive energy device, 11 handguns, nine long guns and ammunition were seized and two 29-year-old women face charges of possession of a prohibited device.

Both women were released from police custody and are scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
