Further details on police drugs raids

Regarding the earlier post about drugs raids in Prestonfield, police have now issued a media release part of which I have reproduced below:

 Three men have been arrested and charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act after police in Edinburgh recovered quantities of Class A and B drugs.

Officers carried out searches at two properties on Wednesday 8th July as part of ongoing enforcement activity to tackle serious organised crime.
During the activity at the addresses within the Prestonfield area, approximately 1/2 a kilo of crack cocaine; 3/4 of a kilo of heroin; 14 ounces of cannabis and around 10,000 diazepam tablets were seized along with a personal quantity of amphetamine.
The total value of the recovered drugs is around £140,000.

A 55-year-old, 30-year-old and 45-year-old will appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today (Friday).
