A significant quantity of heroin, with a maximum street value of £1600, was recovered from within.

A 34-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman were subsequently arrested and charged and appeared from custody at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court today (Wednesday, June 3).

The recovery came as part of the ongoing Operation Dylan by police in the local area.

Sergeant Neil Johnson, who leads the operation, said: “The local community have told us that drug crime is a particular concern for them and we will treat any information given to us by the public with the strictest confidence.

“The fight to remove drugs from our community continues and we are committed to working closely with our partners and the public to ensure that this operation is a success.

“I want to send a clear message to those involved in drug crime that they should seek help now to pursue an alternate lifestyle. Otherwise, it is likely that they can expect a visit from officers involved in Operation Dylan.”
