More drugs arrests in the Southside

Police are reporting over 100 people have been arrested in the Southside - especially the Nicolson Street area in an operation over the last three months (August to the end of October).  I know police have put in more resources to address traditional drug dealing, misuse of NPS (New Psychoactive Substances) and anti-social behaviour (my comment added below).

You can see the press release here and there is more coverage here.

Police have done raids on premises in Potterrow, Nicolson Street, Dumbiedykes and Upper Gray Street as well as a host of on street ;patrols (2000, I think they said).

Work led by Edinburgh's Trading Standards officers led to significant non illegal NPS substances being seized from shops distributing these death substances in the area.
