Officers have also charged a 49-year-old local man following the recovery of heroin with a street value in the region of £2,000 from Guild Street on Friday.

He is anticipated to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today on Monday.

Detective Sergeant Andy Wilson said: “The illegal supply of drugs spreads misery and harm in our communities and the last few days has seen a significant quantity of illegal drugs being removed from circulation.

“There will be no let up from Police Scotland in our commitment to tackling the illegal supply of drugs and associated antisocial behaviour.”
