Police seized cannabis worth £103,000 as Operation Wolf continued across the city.

Officers found dried buds worth £83,320 and mature plants valued at £19,500 at a property in the Gorgie Road area.

Inquiries are ongoing to establish the person responsible.

Further days of action will take place across the Capital throughout May and police are keen to build on the early success of Operation Wolf.

Police Constable Kris Harvey said: “This is a fantastic result for Operation Wolf, and this sizeable find will have a knock-on on effect on organised crime.

“Operation Wolf continues to address the issues that are of concern to our communities in Edinburgh and there will be continuing enforcement.”

Supt. Matt Richards, who is leading on Operation Wolf, added: “The work by PC Harvey and colleagues on the Operation Wolf initiative highlights the importance the public providing us with information, and the speed by which Operation Wolf allows us to react to their concerns.

“If anyone in Edinburgh’s communities wishes to help shape the activities we undertake during this initiative, you can contact us on 101 or speak with your local policing team to raise any community matters you wish police to respond to.”
