Detective Inspector Mark McCullagh from OCCTU East said: “As a result of this operation, a significant quantity of harmful drugs were taken off the streets of Edinburgh, and Dale Cleeton has now been held to account for his actions.

“Drugs can have a devastating impact on communities and officers are working every day to identify those involved in supply and put a stop to their despicable activities.

“Support from members of the public is vital to this work and we would continue to encourage people to engage with the police and pass on any relevant information.”
