Three men have been arrested and charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act after police in Edinburgh recovered Class A and B drugs from an address in the west of the city.

Officers carried out a search of a property in Broomhouse Grove on Friday evening and seized £17,500 worth of cocaine along with over £700 of diamorphine and a small quantity of cannabis.

Two of the men, aged 27, 22 appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday and were remanded in custody, while a 48-year-old appeared in court and was released on bail.

Detective Inspector Stuart Harkness said: “Police Scotland continues to target serious organised crime in Edinburgh and officers have again seized harmful drugs before they could impact upon our communities.

“The public play a vital role in helping us take drugs off our streets by coming forward and providing us with information.

“I would urge anyone wishing to report drug crime, or associated offences in their local area to contact us immediately.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively, the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
