Two men will appear in Sydney Provincial Court today facing drug possession charges after Cape Breton Regional Police seized drugs and cash from a vehicle stop in Membertou

Street Crime officers located and approached the vehicle outside a Veterans Avenue residence at approximately 4:30 PM and executed a search warrant under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, seizing marihuana, hash and a large quantity of Hydromorphone capsules, as well as more than $1,000 cash. All three occupants inside the vehicle were arrested; a 24-year-old female was later released without charges.

Catlin Joseph Howell, 27 of Sydney, and Kao Daniel Harry MacAulay, 20 of Chilliwack British Columbia, are charged with Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking. Howell is also charged with Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and Breaches of a Probation Order.
