FOUR people have been arrested and charged after police found drugs at two properties in the Capital.

Officers raided an address in Main Street, Kirkliston, where they seized approximately £21,000 of herbal cannabis.

Their inquiry led them to Barnton, where they seized approximately £10,000 in cash, along with a small amount of cannabis.

Police arrested and charged four people - aged 39, 33, 44 and 49 - in connection with alleged drugs offences. They will all appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Saturday.

Detective Inspector Neil Spowart said: “This seizure was made as a result of information received through Crimestoppers, and we would encourage anyone with information on potential drug dealers operating in their local community to contact police on 101, or make an anonymous report through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“The Made From Crime? campaign is ongoing and urges members of the public who believe people within their community are profiting from criminal activity to come forward.”
