A 51-year-old man has been charged after detectives seized Class A drugs worth an estimated £170,000 in Aberdeen.

CID officers executed a warrant in the Summerfield Place area of the city on Wednesday afternoon.

Police say crack cocaine and heroin worth a combined six-figure sum was recovered.

A 51-year-old man from Aberdeen has been detained and charged in connection with the seizure.

He is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Thursday.

Detective Inspector Allen Shaw said: “This is a significant seizure of controlled drugs that would have been bound for the streets of the North East, and in particular the most vulnerable people who live in them.

“I cannot stress enough the devastating effects illegal substances can have on our communities which is why targeted proactive action is carried out on a daily basis.”
