Two schoolboys, aged 13 and 15, have been charged in connection with alleged drug offences.
Officers raided two houses in Falkirk on Friday after receiving information about alleged drug dealing in the area.
Police said they recovered what is believed to be MDMA tablets and solid blocks of crystallised ecstasy with an estimated combined street value of £2000.
The teenagers were charged in connection with the seizure and a report has been submitted to the Children’s Reporter.
Chief inspector Chris Stewart said: “This was an intelligence-led operation which was targeted towards specific individuals based on information we had received.
“Vulnerable people, including children, can be a target for criminals who use them to commit crimes such as drug dealing and we are carrying out enquiries to establish if there is any wider criminality.
“We will also continue to work with education and other relevant partners to make sure the necessary support is being provided.
“The recovery of these drugs is a positive step towards protecting the community and shows we will always act on information provided to us.”
