A man is due to appear in court today after Class A and B drugs, worth a six-figure sum, were seized in Grangemouth.

On Friday, May 31, local officers discovered a significant quantity of cocaine during a stop and search in Zetland Park.

Detectives then searched a nearby former sports pavilion where heroin, cocaine and cannabis were found.

A 35-year-old man was arrested and charged and held in custody to appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court in connection with the seizures, collectively worth a maximum street value of £348,000.

Detective Sergeant Mark McCullagh of the OCCTU said: "Disrupting the sale of illicit substances within our communities will continue to be treated with the utmost seriousness by officers.

"We will not allow people to profit from putting others at risk of harm.

"I want to thank the public for their ongoing support in tackling drug offences and would encourage anyone with information to report this to Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously."
