Three people have been charged following a series of drugs raids in Aberdeenshire.
Grampian Police recovered diazepam, cannabis, heroin, and cocaine with an estimated street value of £3500 in the Aboyne and Stonehaven areas.
The substances were recovered during an intelligence-led operation into the supply of controlled drugs in the area.
As a result of the operation, a 23-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman from the Aboyne area appeared at Stonehaven Sheriff Court on Friday for drug offences.
A 39-year-old man from the Inverbervie area is also due to appear at Stonehaven Sheriff Court on Monday.
The latest enforcement stage forms part of Operation Hotspur – a collaborative approach to tackling illegal drugs in Aberdeenshire involving Grampian Police, Aberdeenshire Council and NHS Grampian.
Detective Constable Reynolds said: "Grampian Police will continue the two-pronged approach to tackling illegal drugs and the issues associated with illegal drugs in the Aberdeenshire area.
"The success of the latest phase of this operation should send a very clear signal that we will make Aberdeenshire as hostile an environment as possible for those involved in the supply of drugs.”
Anyone with information about drugs in their area should contact Grampian Police on 0845 600 5700 or anonymously at Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
