Police crackdown leads to heroin seizures
A drugs crackdown resulted in police recovering nearly £4,000 worth of heroin.
A 52-year-old man was yesterday arrested in Lerwick after he was stopped by officers and found with about £700 worth of the drug. A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
Meanwhile a 32-year-old man was stopped by police in Aberdeen after he tried to board the ferry to Lerwick with about £3,000 worth of heroin.
Chief Inspector Lindsay Tulloch said: “We will keep arresting people for drugs offences as long as they persist. The arrest of the man in Aberdeen last night demonstrates we have the ability to stop drugs reaching Shetland but we depend on the communities help.
“Please report anyone you know or suspect to be involved in taking drugs to Shetland and we will take action to stop it.”
