TWO men have been arrested following the recovery of over £35,000 worth of drugs.

The men, aged 25 and 20, have been charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act after a large quantity of class C drugs were recovered in north Edinburgh.

Operation Quarterlight officers recovered around 30,000 diazepam tablets from a vehicle in Pennywell Road at around 2pm yesterday.

A further 400 diazepam tablets, half a kilo of cannabis and suspected stolen items were later recovered following a search of two addresses.

Inspector David Happs said: “This was a significant recovery of potentially harmful drugs, which have been seized before they could cause harm to our communities.

“Operation Quarterlight action continues across Edinburgh and in addition to identifying those responsible for vehicle crime, this initiative will assist us in targeting criminals using their vehicles for committing other crimes, such as the transportation of illegal drugs.

“Police Scotland is committed to tackling drug crime within our communities and will always act on information we receive from the public.”

Both men are scheduled to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday.
