A DRUGS haul worth £20,000 has been seized by police during a raid on a property.

Offices in the west of the Capital also found equipment used for making ‘legal highs’.

The drugs seized included NBOMe, which was recently prohibited under the Misuse of Drugs Act, along with Benzofury.

A 36-year-old man has been detained by police in connection with the discovery.

Detective Chief Inspector Colin Boyle, from Police Scotland’s Specialist Crime Division, urged anyone with information about drug dealers to contact them.

He said: “Police Scotland is committed to keeping people safe, and we will continue to take robust action against those who illegally make and deal drugs in our local communities.

“I would urge anyone who has any information on drug dealers and other serious and organised criminals to contact Police Scotland, either by contacting 101, or by making an anonymous report through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“Rest assured that any information received will be acted upon, and treated in the strictest confidence.”
