Two Stoney Creek men are facing charges after deciding to street race in the east end on Halloween.

Investigators say an officer on patrol saw a Toyota SUV and a BMW sedan going over the speed limit around 11:30 p.m. Thursday night on Queenston Road approaching Gray Road.

Police say the vehicles stopped for a red light at Lake Avenue and then sped off when it turned green. The officer then chased down and stopped both cars.
