£1 million stash of drugs found in Fife

By Cara Sulieman

A HUGE stash of drugs worth more than a million pounds was found in a raid on three houses at the weekend.

The addresses in Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes and Alloa were searched and nine kilos of heroin and 19 kilos of amphetamines were found.

Fife Constabulary Drugs Squad got wind of the stockpile in Fife and Clackmannanshire as part of their intelligence gathering operations.

It is the largest haul in the constabulary’s history, and comes after record seizures of more than £3million of drugs in 2008/9.

Safer streets

A 37-year-old man was scheduled to appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court yesterday in connection with the find.

Detective Inspector Graham Seath said that the operation had prevented a lot of drugs from reaching the streets of Fife.

He said: “Fife Constabulary is totally committed to tackling drug dealing at all levels.

“I urge people to continue to contact the Police or Crime stoppers with information about drugs in their communities.

“No information will be ignored.”
