Spot checks in Stirling result in 15 'drug' arrests

Central Scotland Police have seized cash and more than £1,000 worth of drugs following a series of spot checks in Stirling.

Local Community Officers carried out road checks in Raploch, Cowane Street and the city centre between Friday, 9 November and Saturday, 17 November.

Six men were charged with being concerned in the supply of illegal drugs as a result.

Another eight men and one woman were also reported for possessing drugs.

Police said they had seized a number of illegal substances, including heroin, cannabis and MCAT, all of which, they said, were destined for both distribution and use in the Stirling area.

Local intelligence

Insp Adrian Wright said: "Community Officers continue to be at the heart of delivering solutions to problems which are highlighted by our many local communities.

"The intelligence obtained from local people continues to be used by our officers to detect those actively involved in the use or supply of such drugs.

"The results of our recent work serve as a clear warning to anyone involved in the drugs trade that Central Scotland Police is not only committed to, but very effective in, catching those responsible."
