Police Scotland this morning (Tuesday) swooped on three Arbroath addresses alleged to be involved in the supply of heroin.
Officers from the Community Investigation Unit, led by Sergeant Grace Morrison, targeted addresses in Glenogil Drive, Hepburn Crescent and Hill Street.
Sergeant Morrison explained: “This is an operation we’ve been building on for the last few months with intelligence on drug dealing in the town and focuses on our main target of a serious organised crime group, which has resulted in this day of action.”
At the core of the operation is Police Scotland’s continued commitment to the disruption and intervention in the supply of heroin in Arbroath and could be considered a follow up to the successful operations Shrug and Trillium.
The 10 officers of the Community Investigation Unit were aided by colleagues in the Operational Support Unit and the Police Drugs Dogs Unit.
Further details on the outcome of the raids is expected later and we will update as we receive them.
UPDATE: As a result of operations two individuals will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal for misuse of drugs offences and a four figure sum of cash was seized under the proceeds of crime act.
