Man charged after cannabis cultivation discovered in Levenmouth

Published 31 May 2017

A man has been arrested and charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act after police in Levenmouth  recovered a cannabis cultivation in Buckhaven.

As part of the ongoing Action Plan  Dylan, Levenmouth's ongoing commitment to tackling drug offences, officers carried out an intelligence-led search of an address in Diadem Place on Tuesday 30th May.

Cannabis plants worth £10,500 were seized from within the property and a 35-year-old has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

Sergeant Craig Fyall of Levenmouth Police Station said:  "The public  do not want drugs or drug dealers in their communities and we have a dedicated action plan to tackle drug offences and bring offenders to justice.

"We will continue to act on information and  provide confidence to the public that we are focused  on their concerns.

"There is also a safety issue involved in cultivating cannabis, as the equipment used is often basic and generates a lot of heat through poor electrical installation. This can result in a serious fire risk. It is important that we address this aspect from a criminal and also a public safety perspective.

"If you have information on ongoing drug crime in your area then please contact us via 101 or make an anonymous report to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
