A cannabis plantation worth more than £20,000 has been uncovered during a police raid on an Aberdeenshire home.
Officers from the Aberdeenshire Proactive Unit raided a house in Glenkindie, Alford on Wednesday after getting a tip-off from a member of the public.
Cannabis plants, which would have been worth tens of thousands of pounds if sold on, were found at the house.
Anthony Hole was arrested at the property over the drugs haul and appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Thursday.
The 53-year-old, from Aberdeen, made no plea and was released on bail until he returns to court.
Constable Martin Robertson said: "Once again, we have shown our commitment to our local communities by responding to the information they have provided to us.
"I would urge anyone who believes they may have information regarding those involved in the supply of illegal drugs to contact Grampian Police."
