Two girls, aged 13 and 17, are among six people charged following a major drug bust in the Halifax area.

Police executed a search warrant on Convoy Avenue in Fairview around 11 p.m. Thursday.

They seized more than $196,000 worth of illicit drugs in the bust, including roughly 650 grams of cocaine, 13,000 doses of LSD, and about 250 doses of ecstasy and hydromorphone.

A quantity of cash, two loaded rifles and ammunition, a bulletproof vest and drug paraphernalia were also seized in the raid.

Police say four men and two female youths are facing several drug trafficking and weapons-related charges.

Jose Manuel Acosta, 25, Matthew Francis Coaker, 24, Neil MacDonald, 21, and Clayton Daniel Cromwell, 21 – all of Halifax – are due to appear in Halifax provincial court today.

A 13-year-old girl from Sambro and a 17-year-old girl from Herring Cove are both due in Halifax youth court.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
