Police: Officers raided a property in Aberdeen on Friday.

A cannabis farm and herbal cannabis worth £29,000 were seized in a raid.

Police discovered the illegal cultivation and drugs following the search of a property in Justice Port, Aberdeen, on Friday.

Two men, aged 33 and 34, were arrested and charged in connection with the incident.

A report has been sent to the procurator fiscal.

Sergeant Graeme Moir said: “Police Scotland takes a robust approach in the detection and disruption of persons involved in drug dealing. 

“This not only blights the lives of those using drugs, but also the lives of residents who live nearby.

“Signs of a cannabis cultivation can include blacked-out windows, unusual sounds of fans, additional lighting/heating equipment being taken to the address and also an associated smell.

“I would urge anyone who is living with neighbours whom they suspect of being involved in drug dealing to report their concerns.”
