Two men have been arrested and charged after drugs worth an estimated £72,000 were recovered in Aberdeenshire.

Police seized the controlled drugs, believed to heroin and ‘crack’ cocaine, along with a five-figure sum of cash, after searching a house in the Clinton Drive area of Sandhaven, Fraserburgh, on Monday.

A report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal, with the men, aged 20 and 24, appearing at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

Detective sergeant John Pirie, from Fraserburgh CID, said: “This has been the culmination of a large-scale enquiry into organised crime in the Buchan Corner and we’d like to thank the community for their continued support.

“The supply of controlled drugs in the North East remains a police priority and we will take all steps to detect those involved in this type of criminality, in order to bring offenders to justice and to reduce the availability of illicit drugs in our local communities.”
