A 32-year-old man has been charged in connection with drug offences across the north-east.

On Thursday, April, 30 officers discovered a cannabis cultivation at a property on Cuminestown High Street. A second recovery was made from Haremoss Drive, Portlethen, on Wednesday, May 1. Following investigations, a further two properties were searched in the Torry and Bucksburn areas of Aberdeen and a large number of cannabis plants were found at Glenbervie Road. Cannabis with an estimated street value of over £300,000 was seized during the operation.

On Friday, May 10 a 32-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with the discoveries. He is due to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court (today) Monday.

Detective Inspector Andrew Machray said: “This operation underlines our commitment to the Serious Organised Crime Taskforce and the country’s Serious Organised Crime Strategy.Officers are removing drugs from communities right across Scotland day in, day out, and information provided by the public is vital in helping us continue to do this. I would specifically ask anyone who witnesses any suspicious behaviour in and around buildings that aren’t frequently occupied, or has concerns regarding drug production and crime in their area, to report this to us so we can investigate.”

Those with concerns should report this to Police Scotland via 101, or to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
