Meanwhile, officers have seized a quantity of Class A hallucinogenics in Paisley, a man has been charged in connection with drug offences in Galashiels, four motorists are being reported for driving in excess of 100mph on Highland roads, and as the summer holidays descend, police in South West Fife have issued a warning for local youths to be on their best behaviour at the traditional end of term gathering on Silver Sands Beach in Aberdour.
