Police in Midlothian can confirm that a 22-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman have been arrested following the recovery of a large quantity of drugs.

The pair were arrested following the execution of a warrant at an address in Wheatsheaf Lane, Dalkeith, on Sunday, November 11.

Officers recovered a quantity of cocaine and crack cocaine with an approximate value of £33,000. Almost £2000 in cash was also seized.

The man and woman were subsequently charged and were due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today (November 12).

Detective Sergeant Jordan Sharp of Dalkeith’s Criminal Investigation Department said: “The supply and misuse of drugs devastates lives and has an adverse impact on our whole society.

“This was a large recovery which has resulted in these drugs being taken out of circulation.

“The curtailing of the sale and supply of drugs is a priority for Police Scotland. I would appeal for anyone with information about drug dealing in their local area to get in touch with us immediately.”

Those with information about drug supply and misuse is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
