A man has been arrested after a “significant quantity” of cannabis was found in a car on the A90 between Perth and Dundee.

The 52-year-old has been charged over the find that took place during a police search of the vehicle in the early hours of Saturday.

Officers stopped the car near Inchture before the drugs, which have an estimated street value of £180,000, were recovered.

The man was taken into custody and is due to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court on Monday.

Detective Inspector Robin Sim, Organised Crime & Counter Terrorism Unit said: “This is a significant recovery and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to seriously disrupt drug supply in the North East.

“But we can’t tackle this criminal behaviour alone.

“The public continue to play a vital role in assisting investigations into drug crime and I would encourage anyone who has any concerns about drug-related activity, or has any information about those involved in drugs, to contact police on 101.”
