Customs drugs raid in local flat
HM Customs officers have seized drugs and drug paraphernalia following a raid at a flat in Varyl Begg Estate.
The raid was conducted in the early evening of Friday February 23 as a result of intelligence having been obtained regarding drug dealing within the residence.
Acting on this intelligence, members of the Flexible Anti-Smuggling Team (FAST) from HM Customs executed a search warrant at the property.
As a result of this search, a total of approximately 10 grams of Amphetamine and 50 grams of Cannabis resin were seized.
Scales and other drugs paraphernalia were also seized.
“Although the seizure is not of a large quantity, the disruption of the drug dealing establishment is significant,” Customs said in a statement.
The street value of all the drugs found is estimated to be around £500.
A local 57-year old male, who resides in the property, was arrested and has been bailed out while further investigations are carried out.
