Three people have been charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act following the recovery of drugs worth tens of thousands of pounds in Fife.

Officers carried out an intelligence-led search of an address in the Pentland Place area of Kirkcaldy on Monday 10th December.

Around 9kg of amphetamine, worth £90,000, was seized from within and Police also found a four figure sum of cash inside the property and other items associated with the misuse of drugs.

A 54-year-old man, a 47-year-old woman and a 61-year-old woman were charged with the possession and supply of drugs and scheduled to appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on Tuesday 11 December.

Detective Inspector Douglas Telfer said: “The supply and misuse of drugs can have a devastating effect on our communities. In this case our enforcement activity has resulted in a significant amount of harmful drugs being taken out of circulation.

“Tackling organised crime, which includes drug offences, is a top priority for Police Scotland and any intelligence we receive relating to drugs gets a swift and robust response.

“If anyone has information about ongoing drug crime they should contact Police Scotland on 101 or make a call anonymously to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
