Three people have been arrested and charged after drugs worth an estimated £4,600 were recovered at Aberdeen Ferry Terminal.
Cocaine and cannabis were seized yesterday as the three men tried to transport the drugs to Orkney and Shetland.
The men, aged 39, 30 and 27, are expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today.
Detective Sergeant John Lumsden, of Aberdeen CID, said: “Tackling illegal drugs and removing them from our communities is a priority for Police Scotland.
“Part of that is targeting the transport routes used to courier drugs in and out of the north-east – the ferry terminal in Aberdeen being one of those.
“We will carry out disruption tactics like this as often as we can to stop criminals bringing harm and misery to our communities.
“We rely on the support of the public to build intelligence on drug-related issues so that we can act on their concerns.
“I would urge anyone who is aware of any information about the supply of drugs to report the matter to police on 101, or anonymously through independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
