Police have arrested and charged a woman following the discovery of Class A and B drugs in Dalkeith.

CID officers from Gayfield Police Station executed a warrant at a property on Bruce Gardens yesterday (Thursday, July 21).

Over half a kilogram of cocaine was discovered, along with diamorphine, cannabis, ecstasy and drug paraphernalia.

The combined street value of the drugs is £36,000.

A 28-year-old woman was arrested and charged in connection with drug offences.

She is expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today (Friday).

Chief Inspector Kenny Simpson, based at Dalkeith, said: “This is a significant quantity of drugs taken off the streets of Dalkeith.
