VALLEY – Four people, including three teenagers, are facing charges after police interrupted a cocaine trafficking operation in Colchester County.
At approximately 6 p.m. Aug. 28, members of Colchester District RCMP, Colchester General Investigation Section (GIS), and Local Intelligence Officers of Criminal Intelligence Service of Nova Scotia (CISNS) searched a home on College Road in Valley.
Several people found in the residence were arrested.
Police then searched the home, and located 675 grams of cocaine, a loaded 12-gauge shotgun, and an extendable baton. The home that was searched is close to three schools, parks, and playgrounds, making the disruption of the illegal drug activity a high priority for investigators.

Charges will include:
- A 19-year-old man from Valley is facing charges of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, unauthorized possession of a firearm, and unsafe storage of a firearm.
- A 24-year-old man from Truro is facing charges of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
- A 17-year-old female from Truro is facing charges of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
