TEN people have been charged after police recovered drugs worth more than £670,000 in the Scottish Borders.

Officers from Police Scotland’s organised crime unit and counter terrorism teams seized “significant” quantities of cash, cocaine and heroin.

Seven men and three women were detained between April 5 and 20 in connection with offences relating to the supply of controlled drugs.

On Thursday, a 35-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with offences, including being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs, directing serious organised crime and money laundering offences.

Detective Chief Superintendent Stuart Houston, head of the organised crime and counter terrorism unit, said: “This has been a significant operation, aimed at disrupting the illegal supply of drugs in the Scottish Borders and associated organised crime.

“We will continue to investigate those who profit from, and care nothing for, the misery that drugs bring to individuals, their families and communities.

“Activity such as this is a good example of how specialist national units work closely with local policing colleagues to ensure action is taken to address criminal activity and support our local communities.”

Cops seized 4.5kg of cocaine and 5.5kg of heroin with a total value in excess of £670,000.

Anyone with information or concerns about the supply of illegal drugs is being urged to contact police on 101.
