A 33-year-old man was charged following the search of a property in Prestonpans High Street on February 7, before a 44-year-old woman was arrested the next day in Gardiners Close, Cockenzie.

An 18-year-old man stopped in Delta Road, Musselburgh, was charged on the same day after cannabis was found. All those charged are due to appear in court at a later date.
