Police Scotland can confirm that two men have been arrested and charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

This is in connection with a large quantity of Class B drugs that was recovered from an address in Bonnyrigg.

Officers from the Midlothian Community Action Team (MCAT) executed a search warrant on High Street on Monday, May 18.

A large quantity of cannabis plants were seized, with a maximum street value of £70,000.

The men, aged 43 and 39, both of Vietnamese origin, were detained and have appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

Sergeant Colin McDonald said: “This was an excellent recovery by the Midlothian Community Action Team and it has resulted in around £70,000 worth of cannabis removed from our streets.

“The sale and use of illegal substances is a scourge on our community and tackling this issue is a top priority for Police Scotland. We will not tolerate this type of anti-social behaviour in Midlothian.”
