A Fife man found in possession of a significant quantity of Class A drugs earlier this year has been jailed.

At Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court today (Wednesday, December 2), Robert Dunsire was sentenced to 14 months in prison after officers recovered around 6kg of amphetamine during an intelligence-led search of and address in Strathkinnes Road, Kirkcaldy on the March 23.

The drugs had an estimated value of £60,000 and 39-year-old Dunsire was subsequently charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act. He was pled guilty last month.

Detective Chief Inspector Kenny Gray from the Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism Unit said: “This huge quantity of amphetamine was found within Dunsire’s home address and demonstrated his involvement in the distribution of Class A drugs within the communities of Kirkcaldy.

“As a result of vital intelligence from the public we were able to carry out enforcement activity, which allowed us to seize this amphetamine before it could make it’s way onto the streets of Fife.

“The public can rest assured that any information we receive in relation to drugs offences, will be treated with the utmost seriousness and will be acted upon accordingly.

“If you wish to report ongoing criminal activity in your area then please contact Police Scotland on 101 or make an anonymous report via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
