Three men are expected to appear at Peterhead Sheriff Court today after cannabis with a street value of more than £1,400 was recovered.
A four figure sum of cash was also discovered during an intelligence-led search of a property in the George Road area of Peterhead yesterday involving officers from CID Proactive and the local Community Policing Team.
The three men -two locals aged 20 and 28, and a 23-year-old from Liverpool – were arrested and subsequently charged.
Detective Sergeant John Snedden said: “Thank you to the local community for your patience while this activity was carried out.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the public who continue to provide North East Division with their concerns and information about drugs where they live.
“We are committed to tackling organised crime in the region involving drugs and proactive work is carried out on a daily basis to tackle those people intent on bringing drugs into our communities. However, we need assistance from the public to help us do this so we can target our resources to the right places at the right times.
“I would encourage anyone with concerns about drugs to call Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous. By working together we can make the area you live an even safer place to live.”
