Five arrested over Class A drugs hauls

CLASS A drugs with a street value of £100,000 have been seized by police.

Grampian Police recovered quantities of cocaine and heroin in Aberdeen in two operations yesterday.

Four men were arrested in connection with £90,000 of heroin which officers discovered in the Airyhall and Mastrick areas of the city along with a four-figure sum of cash.

The men, aged 17, 19, 22 and 50, are all local.

A fifth man was also arrested in a separate incident when dealer quantities of heroin and crack cocaine were recovered by police after a 20-year-old man from Manchester was searched at Aberdeen station.

All five are due to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today.

Detective Inspector Kevin Walker said: "Grampian Police are committed to tackling organised crime which has an impact on our communities.

"These two significant seizures are further examples of this and we will continue to make the Grampian Police area as hostile an environment as possible for those involved in the sale or supply of controlled drugs."

Reports have been sent to the procurator-fiscal.
