Police seize dozens of cannabis plants

Police found 91 plants in the flat

CANNABIS worth £26,000 has been seized by police in Fife.

The 91 plants were discovered in a raid on a flat in Kirkcaldy’s West March Street on Wednesday, November 9.

Two people were charged with offences under the Misuse of Drugs Act and the Electricity Act, and a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

PC Sarah Foster, based at Kirkcaldy, said: “Thanks to information supplied to us by members of the public, we identified where a large amount of cannabis was being grown.

“As a result, we were able to take possession of a large quantity of drugs and prevent them from coming on to our streets. We are committed to preventing and disrupting criminal activity in relation to drugs offences within the Fife area and we would like to thank the public for their help in this case.”

Detective Superintendent Colin Beattie, Head of Crime Management at Fife Constabulary, said: “This latest seizure brings the amount of drugs taken off the streets in Fife this week to more than £100,000. It comes in the same week that four people were convicted at the High Court in Glasgow of attempting to bring Class A and Class B drugs worth another £300,000 on to our streets.

“So far this year we have seized drugs worth more than £2 million, which if they had been allowed onto our streets would have caused untold harm and misery across our community.”
