Police have seized over $1 million worth of drugs following a three-month investigation in Nova Scotia.

Truro Police Services and RCMP executed searches at three addresses in Colchester County and one address in Halifax Regional Municipality.

Police say they seized drugs at an estimated street value of over $1 million plus $94 thousand in cash.

A 35-year-old Beaver Brook man is facing charges of possession for the purposes of drug trafficking and violation of a court order.

More charges are expected against other people involved.

Police say this sophisticated crime group based in rural Colchester had been trafficking cocaine and supplying cannabis to illegal dispensaries throughout Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
