THREE IN COURT AFTER DRUGS SEARCHES IN GALASHIELS

Police in the Scottish Borders conducted searches of three addresses in Galashiels on Tuesday 20th June, targeting individuals involved in the supply of illegal drugs.

This activity, as part of Operation Gatekeeper, generated positive results, with two men and one woman being arrested for offences under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

Drugs with a street value of £27,800 were recovered from two addresses.

The two men aged 69-years-old and 30-years-old and the woman aged 49-years-old were due to appear at Selkirk Sheriff court on Wednesday 21st June.

Detective Sergeant Barry Roebuck from Galashiels CIU said: "We will not tolerate the supply of controlled drugs in our communities and we will continue to work closely with the community and our partners to ensure any offences detected are reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

“I can assure the public that any information relating to drug activity in their areas will be acted upon appropriately and handled in a discreet manner.”

Chief Inspector Andrew McLean, Area Commander for the Scottish Borders said: "Through coordinated activity such as Operation Gatekeeper we will continue to target those involved in the supply of controlled drugs and make every effort to bring them to justice.

“Police Scotland treat all instances of drugs supply with the highest priority.

“I would like to reassure the public and local residents of the areas that we will continue with our pro-active patrols and use all police powers at our disposal to deter and detain those involved in such criminality.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively anonymously to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Sid MeinSo what drugs are they talking about? Cannabis is a herb which contains thc which my brain reacts to and it's a herb the government have no problem growing when needed, saved the american air force , if it wasn't for this plant they wouldn't have their parachutes. Cannabis is like any other herb, needs no chemicals to produce, and like every other herb you can dry it out and use in food, the medical capabilities are growing every year... HEROIN IS A MAN MADE DRUG WHICH IS NOT GROWN NATURAL, ITS A FLOWER WHICH WHEN BROKEN DOWN WITH CEMICALS BECOMES DEADLY .......STOP CLASSING ALL DRUGS THE SAME....... IGNORANCE IS BLISS TO SOME PEOPLE HOPE IT WAS HEROINE THEY FOUND........
