A man has been charged after £157,000 worth of cannabis was seized in Aberdeen.
Police made the bust of cannabis plants at an address in Tedder Street in Tillydrone on Wednesday, 8 January, after an intelligence led operation.
A 26-year-old man was arrested and charged and is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today.
Detective Sergeant Scott McKay of the Aberdeen Proactive Unit said: “As a result of information provided by the public and enquiries conducted by Local Policing Officers in Tillydrone, a significant amount of drugs have been seized and removed from circulation.
“This will have a significant impact on those involved in the supply of controlled drugs and those who gain financially from this type of criminality.
“We are committed to tackling crime involving drugs in our communities and members of the public have a vital role to play in reporting information to us.
“I would encourage anyone who has information relating to those involved in the sale and supply of controlled drugs, or who suspect that a property is being used for drug related crimes, to contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
“The smallest piece of information provided by the public can be the last piece of the puzzle needed in order for officers to take enforcement action, so no information should be discounted or seen as insignificant.”
