Two men appeared in court today in connection with the seizure.
Egidijus Andzelis, 21, of no fixed abode, and Inas Maksimavicius, 25, of Southampton, are accused of producing a controlled drug and supplying it.

They made no plea or declaration during the brief private hearing at Peterhead Sheriff Court and were remanded in custody.
Their case was continued for further examination, and they will appear again at a later date.
