A woman has been charged in connection with a haul of class A drugs that were seized during a bust in Shetland.

The 47-year-old was arrested after heroin with an estimated value of £9000 was found by police after they searched a property in Lerwick.

She will appear at court on Wednesday.

Officers searched the property on South Road on Tuesday afternoon.


Chief inspector Lindsay Tulloch said: “We are committed to tackling the supply of drugs in Shetland and we will pro-actively target anyone intent on causing harm to the local community through this illegal trade.

“We rely on the support of the public to help us take action against those who choose to involve themselves in trading illegal drugs.”
