A 38-year-old man has appeared in court in Aberdeen following the discovery of a cannabis cultivation site worth an estimated £1.1m near Turriff.

On Tuesday, January, 30 officers were alerted to a possible cultivation at a property in the Auchterless area.

Following a search, a large-scale operation was found and a 38-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection subsequently appearing at Aberdeen Sheriff Court where he made no plea and will be committed at a future date.

Detective Sergeant Chris Wilson, Aberdeen CID, said: “We will continue to use every tool and tactic at our disposal to prevent the sale and distribution of drugs in our communities.

“Our work often relies on the support of the public. If you have any information or concerns about drug misuse in your area, do not hesitate to contact Police Scotland on 101 or report it anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
