Police raided a property in East Pilton Farm Avenue on Wednesday, where a large quantity of herbal cannabis was seized.

The total value of the haul was estimated at £37,500, and three men – aged 49, 32, and 43 – are due to appear in court today in connection with the seizure. In a separate inquiry, officers seized amphetamines and cannabis worth an estimated £56,250 following a raid in Lorne Street. A total of £4445 in cash was also seized.

A 32-year-old man and 30-year-old woman were arrested and charged in connection with alleged drugs offences, and are due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court tomorrow.

Detective Inspector John Kavanagh said: “These seizures come as part of our ongoing commitment towards tackling drug-related criminality.”
