Tayside and Central Scotland

Two arrests after further Dundee drugs seizures

Two men have been charged in connection with the recovery of drugs in Dundee with an estimated street value of about £100,000.

Officers from Police Scotland's crime and counter terrorism unit seized the heroin after stopping a vehicle on the outskirts of the city on Thursday.

The men, aged 45 and 26, are due to appear in court in Monday.

Police have seized class A drugs worth about of £325,000 in Dundee in the past week as part of a wider crackdown.

Det Ch Insp Colin Gall said: ''This highlights our determination to disrupt those serious and organised crime groups whose only intention is to profit on the misery of others.

''It also makes it absolutely clear to criminals that they are not welcome in Tayside.

"We will do everything in our powers to make our communities inhospitable and hostile places for them to try and peddle their poison."
