A 41-year-old and a 16-year-old have been charged in connection with drug offences.
Two men have been charged in connection with road traffic and drug offences in Edinburgh.
Police stopped a Ford Transit van in Moredun Dykes Road, at about 1:05am on Friday, and a 41-year-old driver provided a positive roadside drug test and was arrested.
Heroin and cocaine with an estimated street value of £21,000 was found after a search of the vehicle.
A three-figure sum of cash was also found along with a Conductive Energy Device, also known as a stun gun.
A 16-year-old passenger was also arrested in connection with drug offences.
A report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
A search of a property in East Lothian in connection with the incident saw a further quantity of heroin recovered with an estimated street value of £28,000. Three offensive weapons were also found and seized for further analysis.
Inspector Roger Park of Edinburgh's Road Policing Unit said: “A large amount of controlled drugs have been seized as a result of this proactive stop which involved a number of units working together across the city.
“We continue to target anyone involved in the possession and supply of illegal substances and will always conduct a thorough investigation where information suggests criminality.
“The men are both expected to appear before Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday, 6 January 2020.”
