A man has been arrested after police in north east Edinburgh seized a large quantity of drugs and cash.

Officers carried out a warrant in Cakemuir Gardens on Wednesday, November 29, and approximately £44,000 worth of heroin, cannabis and crack cocaine was recovered along with a large sum of money.

The 38 year old man has been charged and is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today.

Local Area Commander, Chief Inspector Kevin McLean said: “Yesterday’s warrant and drugs recovery continues the good work of Operation Eagle, which has now seen over £300,000 of illicit substances seized by local officers.

“The misuse and supply of drugs has a huge impact on our communities, and we couldn’t achieve this without their support and the information they provide. Anyone with information about such activity in their area should contact police on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
