Thirteen wraps of crack cocaine worth £500 were recovered and the 31-year-old was due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today (Friday).

Constable John Lumsden from the CIU said: “All drug offences are treated with the utmost seriousness and those found to be involved can expect to be robustly dealt with.

“Prior to the arrest of this male a number of members of the public came forward to provide really useful information and we would like to thank them for assisting us.”
