Four people have been charged in connection with drugs offences in Aberdeen after police carried out patrols in the city.
Officers stopped and searched 21 people the Northfield, Torry, Garthdee and West End areas of the city on Saturday.
The patrols are part of the latest phase of Operation Maple.
One man aged 29, two men aged 19 and one man aged 18 were all found in possession of substances and charged.
A 41-year-old man was also charged in connection with drink-driving and officers issued three fixed penalty notices in relation to antisocial behaviour.
Detective Constable Simon Reid, who coordinated the operation, said: "This was another successful weekend delivering the type of policing the public have come to expect under the Maple Strategy, linked to listening to our communities and targeting those involved in antisocial behaviour, violence and drugs.
"Our stop searches detected four people who were in possession of illegal substances, and we were able to take controlled drugs off the streets as a result.
"Maple is about working with our communities, and our partners, to make our city safer.
"In this respect, we are always encouraged and grateful when local residents take the time to engage with our officers when we're out on patrol.
"Through their information, we are able to target the small minority, who through their behaviour create challenges in the community, and by doing so make a real, visible difference.
"The weekend's work is further evidence of the tangible benefits there are when police and communities work hand in hand.
"Maple is a long-term strategy, it continues to evolve and improve thanks to the efforts of both the officers involved and indeed the local communities we are aiming to support.
"It should come as no surprise that there are more days of action planned, and we look forward to continuing to work with our communities to deal with antisocial behaviour, and take violent offenders and dangerous substances off our streets.
"I would encourage the public to continue to provide the information which has greatly assisted us to date."
