Three people have been charged after drugs worth more than £100,000 were seized during a raid on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

Officers acting on intelligence searched a property in Cleric’s Hill, Kirkliston, at around 4.10pm on Monday.

Heroin, cannabis, cocaine and crack cocaine were seized, with an estimated street value of more than £100,000.

Two men, aged 26 and 21, and a 22-year-old woman were charged in connection with drugs offences and were due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

Detective Inspector Kevin Harkins from Edinburgh’s criminal investigations department said: “We continue with our enforcement activity to target and disrupt those involved in drug misuse and associated criminality across the city.

“Information gathered by the public is always acted upon and they have a vital role to play in ensuring we can continue to bring perpetrators of drug offences before the courts.”
