A man has been arrested and charged after police seized £115,000 worth of Class B drugs during a search at an Inverness property.

Officers have hailed the "significant seizure", which followed an "intelligence-led search" at an address in Bailey Place on Wednesday. As well as the six-figure drugs haul, more than £4000 in cash was also found.

A 23-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with drugs offences, and is due to appear at Inverness Sheriff Court at a later date.

Sergeant Michael Clark, of the violence reduction unit, said: “This is a significant seizure and highlights our dedication to removing illegal drugs from within our communities.

“This operation underlines our commitment to the Serious Organised Crime Taskforce and the country’s Serious Organised Crime Strategy.

“Members of the public play a vital role in the crackdown of unlawful substances and I would urge anyone with information or concerns to please contact us via 101, or alternatively the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 where anonymity can be maintained.”
