A haul of drugs worth around £38,000 have been seized from a car and address in West Lothian.

Officers stopped the vehicle just off the M8, near Livingston, at around 8pm on Monday, March 27.

A 37-year-old man was arrested and around £2,000 in cash and quantities of suspected cannabis were recovered, according to Police Scotland.

A search warrant was then conducted at an address in Drumcross Road in Bathgate where approximately £11,000 in cash was found.

Alongside this, drugs, suspected to be cannabis, amphetamines and cocaine, were recovered.

A 31-year-old woman and 46-year-old man were arrested and subsequently charged from the address.

All three are due to appear at Livingston Sheriff Court on Wednesday.

Around £38,000 worth of drugs were seized in total as part of the operation.

Detective sergeant John Irvine from Livingston CID said: “This work has resulted in a significant amount of drugs being seized which will no longer end up on our streets.

“Tackling drug crime remains a priority and anyone who has information or concerns regarding drug misuse in their area should report this to us via 101.”
