A 20 year-old man has been reported following an police drugs operation, helped by the Dogs Against Drugs dog handler, Michael Coutts and his dog Nico.
The man was arrested in Lerwick yesterday after being found in possession of what police believe to be class A drugs with an estimated street value of more than £10,000.
Nico the nine-year-old blond Labrador has been working as a drugs detection dog in Shetland from the age of two years old. The top detection dog is due for retirement next year after an impressive career.
Inspector Lindsay Tulloch of the Police Scotland, Shetland Community Policing Team, said: “Drugs are a blight that are present in all communities, including the islands, and we are determined to deal with the issue on Shetland robustly with help from the public and our partner agencies.”
