Three men have been charged after class A drugs worth more than £22,000 were recovered from an Aberdeen house.
Diamorphine, ‘crack’ cocaine and cocaine were discovered, along with a high four figure sum of cash, at the property in the Strawberry Bank Parade area of the city yesterday.
CID proactive officers carried out a drug search warrant at the property and a 45-year-old man from the Oxford area and two local men, aged 22 and 26, have since been arrested and charged.
They are expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today.
Detective Inspector Stuart McAdam said: “Thank you to those members of the public who provided information in connection with this intelligence-led inquiry.
“There is no place for drugs in our communities and North East Division is committed to targeting those who choose to involve themselves in such crime, particularly those who come from out with the area and don’t care about the consequences their actions can have on the people who live here.
“We will continue to take action to ensure the area is as safe as possible and a hostile environment for drug-related crime, and local communities can play the most crucial role of all by telling us when and where suspicious activity is happening.
“By having the confidence to tell us your concerns we can all make it very difficult for individuals involved in Serious and Organised Crime Groups to operate.
“Anyone with concerns should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous.”
