A man has been arrested and 33,000 diazepam tablets seized in a police raid.

Officers searched a property in Marion Street, Kirkcaldy, on Friday and made the discovery of class C drugs.

A 24-year-old man was arrested over the find and is due to appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court next week.

Police said the diazepam tablets have a potential street value of £33,000 and 2oz of amphetamine was also found, thought to be worth £280.

Detective Chief Inspector Kenny Gray said: “Officers conducted extensive inquiries before making this substantial recovery of drugs destined for our streets.

“Our communities tell us that drugs and drug crime is a priority for them, and Police Scotland is dedicated to pursuing offenders and ensuring they are brought before the courts.”
