A 40 year old man has been arrested and charged with drugs offences as a result of high visibility patrols carried out under Operation Wolf.

The man was stopped in Broomhouse yesterday and found to be in possession of cannabis valued at £600. A quantity of heroin was also recovered from his home address.

He will appear at court at a later date.

Superintendent Matt Richards said: “Drug misuse is a particular concern for residents in south west Edinburgh and we will continue to target those in possession of controlled substances or involved in their supply.

This recovery of cannabis and heroin, along with the recovery of £35,000 in cash last week, show how Operation Wolf continues to take a bite out of local criminals.”

“The aim of this operation is to target the issues and concerns of residents across the city.”
