Two men have been arrested after a large quantity of drugs was recovered in Kirkcaldy.

Officers from Police Scotland’s Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism Unit carried out intelligence-led searches of two properties in Birnam Road and Mid Street, on Thursday 12th April, where they seized half a kilo of cocaine and four kilos of cannabis.

The drugs have a potential street value of £60,000 and the men aged 32 and 34 are scheduled to appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on Friday 13th April.

Detective Chief Inspector Alan O’Brien from OCCTU East said: “Thanks to vital intelligence gathered by OCCTU, large quantities of cocaine and cannabis have been seized before they could be distributed within our communities.

“Tackling organised crime, which includes drugs offences, remains one of our top priorities and whenever we receive reports of this nature we will investigate thoroughly and bring those responsible to justice.

“Members of the public who wish to report ongoing drug crime in their community can do so by calling 101 or by making an anonymous report to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
