Lawmen say a car was intercepted at Skeete’s Bay, but the occupants escaped.
A search of the vehicle discovered three polythene bags containing 53.2 pounds of cannabis and another bag containing 29 packages of cocaine weighing 31.7 kilograms.
The two accused were arrested following investigations.
Manson-Hing received additional charges following the execution of a search warrant at his residence a few days later.
Police say small quantities of cannabis and cocaine, along with an apparatus were found.
As a result, he is also facing charges of possession of cannabis, possession of cocaine, possession with intent to supply cocaine, trafficking cocaine and possession of an apparatus.
The two men are due to appear in court tomorrow.
