Four people were anticipated to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday (Monday) after drugs were recovered in the Inverurie and Huntly areas.

Three men aged 35, 33 and 22 were due to appear following the recovery of cannabis and cocaine worth more than £25,000 from an address in Inverurie on Friday, 5 August.

A mid four-figure sum of money was also recovered.

A 31-year-old woman was also anticipated to appear following the recovery of Class C drugs including diazepam and cannabis worth around £2600 in the Huntly area on Friday, 5 August.

She has also been charged in relation to a racial breach of the peace.

Local Area Commander in Aberdeenshire South, Chief Inspector Murray Main said: “As we know, illegal drugs can have a devastating impact on individuals but also their families and wider communities through associated criminality and antisocial behaviour.

“Make no mistake, officers across Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray will continue working closely with specialist officers, partners and communities themselves, to secure information and target those cruel individuals and groups who profit from the sale or distribution of illegal drugs.”

Anyone with concerns in relation to drugs can contact the police on 101.
