CANNABIS with an estimated value of £135,000 was seized by police during two raids in the Capital.

The first cultivation was discovered at an address in Forrester Park Gardens on Thursday, where £115,000 worth of cannabis was discovered along with £1795 in cash.

A 22-year-old man was charged over the discovery and appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Friday, when he was released on bail.

The second cultivation was discovered the following day in Roseburn Street, Roseburn, with cannabis worth about £20,000 seized. Police said further inquiries were under way to find those responsible.

A police spokesman said: “These discoveries serve to highlight the continued use of residential premises for cannabis cultivation, and we would encourage anyone who suspects that a property in their neighbourhood is being used for this purpose to contact police.”
