Class A drugs with a 'street' value of almost £130,000 have been seized during an operation in Aberdeen city-centre.
CID officers attended the Guild street area yesterday morning (Wednesday January 24, 2018) acting on intelligence and, following a search, recovered significant quantities of heroin and cocaine.
A 37-year-old from London was traced in the area a short time later and was arrested and charged in connection with the recovery. He is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today (Thursday, January 25).
Detective Sergeant Bruce Buntain said: "This latest seizure is yet more evidence of our commitment to infiltrating illegal substances before they make it into our communities. It should send a clear warning that this illegal trade is not welcome here."
He added: "It is crucial we work together with the public to target our resources to the right place and at the right times. Please continue to let us know your concerns about drugs misuse by contacting Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 to remain anonymous."
Call 101 for non-emergencies and general policing matters, in an emergency call 999. If you have information about a crime you can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
