Two in court after £24k of cocaine found

Two men have appeared in court in connection with the seizure of a half a kilo of cocaine.

Zaheem Ahmed, 23, and Imtiaz Ahmed, 25, both appeared on petition at Livingston Sheriff Court on Monday.

They were arrested on Friday and charged with possessing and being concerned in the supply of a controlled drug.

The pair, who are both from Livingston, West Lothian, made no plea or declaration.

They were committed for further examination and freed on bail.

Police Scotland said three people were charged after the drug with a street value of £24,000 was recovered.

A police spokesman said the Class A drug had been found within a commercial property near a school in Livingston.

A 15-year-old boy is being reported to the Procurator Fiscal and Children’s Reporter separately in relation to the offence.
