TWO men have been arrested after £176,000 of heroin was seized from a property in Niddrie Marishal Drive today.

A quantity of heroin and herbal cannabis - valued at £1000 - was also recovered.

A 37 and 38-year-old man were due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court day.

Area Commander Mark Rennie said: “Drug dealing is one of the crime problems which concerns local residents the most in East Edinburgh. It’s one of our agreed local ward priorities and we have been doing a lot of activity around it over the last few months as part of Operation Wolf. This substantial recovery of class A Drugs in the Niddrie area yesterday will ensure that local drug dealers understand our continued commitment to targeting the problem”
