- Quantities of cannabis, cocaine and amphetamine were recovered after a number of house searches in Dumfries - a woman from the town is expected to appear in court.
Det Insp Mark Carruthers, of the force's drug squad, said: "This has been a particularly busy period which has brought about some substantial recoveries of drugs in the region over a fairly short period of time."
He urged anyone with further information about drugs in the region to contact police immediately.
