Cocaine with an estimated potential value of £1million has been recovered after a search at a property in the north-east.
Officers executed a warrant at a property on Ferrier Gardens in Aberdeen during the afternoon of Tuesday, November 14.
A 31-year-old man was arrested in connection with the recovery and is due to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today, Wednesday, 15.
Detective Inspector Robin Sim said: “This is a significant recovery and is an example of our efforts to disrupt the trade in illegal drugs in the north-east of Scotland.
“This operation also underlines our commitment to the Serious Organised Crime Taskforce and the country’s Serious Organised Crime Strategy.
“Activity such as this is driven by community intelligence and I would urge anyone with information or concerns about drugs should contact us on 101, or make a call anonymously to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
