HALIFAX - Three people have been arrested following an RCMP raid that targeted synthetic drug distribution in Nova Scotia.
Police seized 12,000 hits of MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy, and a handgun on Tuesday at a condominium in Bedford and a self-storage locker in Halifax.
Benjamin Alexander Langille, Nicholas Damien Daaboul and Lindsay Natasha Dow face several drug-related charges.
Police say the drugs they seized were likely made by organized crime groups in British Columbia and destined for resale in the Halifax area.
Many of the tablets were stamped with the Olympic ring logo.
Police say they anticipate laying more charges in coming weeks.
