Drugs worth more than £800,000 have been seized by police during a month-long series of raids across the Highlands and Islands.
Searches were carried out at 34 properties, with significant amounts of illegal substances discovered, including large quantities of heroin and cocaine.
During the January and February crackdown, officers also uncovered a “substantial and large-scale” cannabis farm.
Illegally obtained tablets – thought to have been purchased online – were also found, together with £17,000 in cash believed to be linked to criminal activity.
Police said properties in Shetland, Orkney, Caithness, Wester Ross, Easter Ross, Inverness, Badenoch, Nairn and Lochaber had all been targeted.
It is thought the raids will have caused “extensive disruption” to those intent on trafficking and dealing, with the overall street value of the drugs found assessed at more than £820,000.
The recoveries are the latest to be made under Operation Ram, which aims to disrupt the illegal drug trade in the Highlands and Islands.
Eight people have or will be reported in connection with the supply of controlled drugs, with several other individuals expected to be reported as a result of ongoing inquires.
Detective Inspector Peter Mackenzie said: “We are committed to disrupting the activities of those involved in serious crime at all levels and Operation Ram is an established means of doing that.
“This operation brought together officers from a number of departments, including local policing officers and officers from the community investigation unit, as well as colleagues from the specialist crime division and the operational support division.
“Time and again the public tell us they are sick of the way that drugs are destroying young people, families and neighbourhoods.
“Drugs bring nothing but harm to our communities and this is a message that we are listening and responding to these concerns.
“We are taking action against the criminals who cause this damage.”
Detective Inspector Mackenzie added: “While we are encouraged by these recent seizures, we will never become complacent and will continue to work every day to tackle the drug trade and the problems it brings and causes.
“We want to ensure the Highlands and Islands are a hostile environment for drug dealers.
“Our message to them is that they are not wanted in our communities.”
He also praised members of the public who had come forward to provide information, saying much of the success of Operation Ram had been as a direct result “of intelligence shared by members of the public who do not tolerate drugs in their community”.
