A member of the Canadian Forces and his civilian brother are facing drug trafficking charges.
National Defence announced Monday that the pair were charged on Feb. 7 following an investigation into illegal drug activity at 4th Canadian Division Support Base Petawawa in eastern Ontario.
Officials say a private home on the base was searched on Feb. 3, and Cpl. Philippe Serge Leveillee of 2 Combat Engineer Regiment and David Joseph Leveillee were arrested.
They say about 28 grams of suspected cocaine and 20 grams of suspected marijuana, as well as packaging materials, a scale and other drug paraphernalia were seized.
Both are charged with two counts each of possession for the purpose of trafficking, and possession of a controlled substance.
The brothers are scheduled to appear in court in Pembroke, Ont., on March 7.
