Two men arrested following a drug bust in Antigonish are scheduled to return to court in the new year.
Police say members of the Antigonish/Guysborough RCMP Street Crime Enforcement Unit searched a home on Hawthorne St. in Nov. 2017.
They say officers seized a large amount of cocaine, marijuana and cash.
RCMP say two Antigonish men have been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking.
Michael Charles Benoit, 49, of Antigonish and Coty Weston Leblanc, 24, made their first appearances in the case in January; they were committed to stand trial by judge alone in Nova Scotia Supreme Court following preliminary inquiries in Antigonish Provincial Court in April.
Their trial, which opened in September, resumed in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Antigonish Tuesday; it’s expected to continue Jan. 7.
