Have your say

Two men and a woman have been arrested and charged after police recovered Class A and B drugs, along with a stun gun and an “incapacitant spray” from three addresses in the south of Edinburgh.

The premises were searched under Misuse of Drugs Act warrants as part of an ongoing operation to tackle serious and organised crime.

Officers carried out searches at properties in Burnhead Grove, The Murray’s and Gilmerton Dykes Crescent on Monday morning. A total of £3,500 worth of cocaine and cannabis were seized.

The men aged 18 and 26 and a woman aged 22 were due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today.

Detective Inspector Stuart Harkness said: “As a result of community intelligence we were in a position to search these premises under warrant.

“The searches have resulted in the recovery of a significant amount of drugs along with the items controlled under the Firearms Act. This goes along way to keeping our communities safe and combating organised crime within the city.

“The public have played a vital role in helping us take drugs off our streets by coming forward and providing us with this information.

“I would urge anyone wishing to report drug crime, or associated offences in their local area to contact us immediately.”
