POLICE have seized heroin and cannabis during raids on four homes in Midlothian.

The raids also saw two men and a woman arrested over drug charges.

Officers carried out raids on the addresses in the Mayfield area of Dalkeith on Wednesday morning, with drugs worth an estimated £800 seized.

The three people arrested are all set to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court at a later date.

Chief superintendent Mark Williams said: “Communities across Midlothian can be reassured that the force is committed to making our streets safer and more secure for the vast majority of law-abiding people who stay here.

“We would urge members of the public to play their part by reporting anyone they suspect of being involved in drug dealing or any other form of serious and organised criminal activity.”
