Cannabis worth £12,000 seized in drug raid in West Fife

Police in West Fife have found Cannabis plants worth £12,000 at an address in Steelend, reports GAIL MILNE.

A local man has been charged and was due to appear at Dunfermline Sheriff Court at a later date in relation to offences under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Area Community Sergeant, Jillian Neill, who led the operation, said: “Operations like this cannot be conducted without the assistance of the public who work and live in our communities and this is a great example that highlights people are willing to contact and engage with the police. With the public’s help we can work together and rid our communities of illicit substances and the hugely detrimental wider impact they have.

“I would ask again that if you have any information about the supply of drugs in the South West Fife area to contact Fife Constabulary on 0845 600 5702 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. All information is dealt with in the strictest confidence and I would like to take the opportunity to thank all those who have provided us with recent information.”
