Two men have been arrested after £60,000 worth of cannabis was seized during a series of police raids in Dumfries.
Officers executed search warrants on five properties on Friday and significant quantities of the drug were found.
A 53-year-old man has been charged in connection with the find and a 34-year-old was released pending further police enquires.
Detective Inspector Craig Nicolson, of Dumfries CID, said: “Our enquiries are ongoing following this pro-active operation.
“We remain committed to taking appropriate action against people profiting from the sale of illegal and harmful substances.
“The supply of controlled drugs in Dumfries and Galloway 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.
“If anyone has any concerns regarding the abuse of controlled drugs, or anyone who may be involved in the supply of controlled drugs, please contact Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
