A 22-year-old Vietnamese man has been charged following the recovery of a large scale cannabis cultivation worth in the region of £380,000.
Intelligence-led operation officers made the recovery on Sunday at a property in the New Aberdour area.
It is anticipated that the man will appear at Peterhead Sheriff Court today.
Detective Sergeant George Nixon said: “This is a recovery of a significant amount of illegal drugs which would have been bound for our communities.
“We are determined to continue to stop those intent on making money from the illegal sale of drugs which only serves to cause harm to the communities of the north-east.
“Enquiries in relation to this recovery are continuing and I would urge anyone with information to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.
“Anyone with concerns about drugs in their community or who sees anything unusual or suspicious should contact police and any information will be taken seriously and acted upon.”
