“Operation Prospect is Fife Division’s commitment to proactively targeting all forms of drug crime, which we know remains a priority to the public, and which has led to an increase in the number of drug-related charges being made locally.

“Police would urge the public to continue to help us tackle this. If you have information or concerns about drug offences, please contact Police Scotland on 101 or report this anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
