Class A drugs with a potential ‘street’ value of £52,000 have been seized from a vehicle which was stopped by police.
The vehicle was travelling on A96 – the main route from Aberdeen to the Highlands – when it was stopped near Inverurie yesterday at around 6.30pm.
Cocaine and heroin were recovered during the operation which involved officers from various units in the north-east.
Two women aged 26 and 52 from the Moray area were arrested in connection and a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal. They will appear in court at a later date.
DC Kim Duncan said: “Thankfully a significant amount of illegal drugs have been removed as a result of this action.
“Tackling the misuse of drugs in the North East cannot happen without the support and intelligence from the public and I would urge you to continue letting us know your concerns by calling 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 to remain completely anonymous.”
