Two men, aged 39 and 20, are expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today following the recovery of crack cocaine valued at around £1,600.
The recovery was made on Friday in the Powis Place area of Aberdeen as part of a community policing intelligence-led operation, intended to disrupt the illegal supply of drugs in the Kittybrewster, Seaton and Tillydrone areas of Aberdeen.
As part of the two-week operation six drug search warrants have been carried out and cocaine with a total estimated street value of £5,500 has been removed from Aberdeen communities.
A total of ten individuals have been charged and reported to the Procurator Fiscal in relation to alleged drugs offences.
The operation has also seen two individuals arrested on apprehension warrants and £1,500 of cash recovered.
Inspector Rob Sturton of the Kittybrewster Community Policing Team said: “We are committed to listening to the concerns of our communities and acting upon them to tackle criminality and improve the quality of life.
“We understand the social impact and harm the illegal supply of drugs can have upon community life and will take every opportunity to identify, disrupt and deal with individuals involved.
“We continue to encourage anyone with concerns or information about drugs to contact police on 101.”
