On Friday officers from Inverurie Community Policing Team (CPT), supported by a Specialist Dog Unit and CID Detectives, led an intelligence led operation in Port Elphinstone area of Inverurie.
During the operation, a drug search warrant was executed at an address in the Elphinstone Road area which resulted in the recovery of cocaine with a maximum potential street value of £21,300.
Five persons were arrested and have been charged in connection with the recovery and are anticipated to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court at a later date.
Sergeant John Kearney of Inverurie CPT said: “I would like to thank the public for the information they have provided which has led to the recovery of a significant amount of controlled drugs.
"This should serve as a reminder to those involved in the supply of drugs that your behaviour will not be tolerated by the local community or the policing teams that serve them.
"Police Scotland will continue to take robust action to disrupt the activities of those involved in drug crime.”
Anyone who has information regarding drug dealing can report it anonymously via the registered charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
