Police have arrested 18 men as part of an operation targeting organised crime.
Detectives and road policing officers swooped in Aberdeen on Wednesday after a tip-off.
Officers said that 18 people were charged in connection with a number of offences, including drugs supply and road traffic offences.
Those charged were aged between 18 and 53.
Detective sergeant John Lumsden, from Aberdeen CID, said: “These patrols were designed to root out offenders involved in serious crime and significantly disrupt their illegal activities.
“This is the latest in a series of operations as part of a road crime initiative across the north-east and I want to reassure the public that these efforts will not stop, with more planned in the coming weeks and months.”
