Two arrested over BMW drug find


TWO people have been arrested and charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act after Lothian and Borders Police recovered Class A and B drugs in West Lothian yesterday evening.

Officers in Linlithgow carried out personal searches on the occupants of a BMW car during which time quantities of herbal cannabis and crack cocaine were seized along with a four-figure sum of cash.

A 47-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man are scheduled to appear in court tomorrow in connection with alleged drug offences.

A police spokesman said: “Lothian and Borders Police is committed to removing the scourge of drugs from our communities and bringing those involved in their supply to justice.

“As a result of proactive policing in Linlithgow, local officers were able to ensure that crack cocaine and herbal cannabis meant for our communities is now in the possession of police.

“Intelligence is a vital tool in tackling the drugs trade and anyone with information relating to drug crime in their area should contact police immediately, or alternatively get in touch anonymously with the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
