Police in Fife have charged two people following a large cannabis seizure in Kirkcaldy as part of the ongoing Operation Prospect.

Acting on a tip-off, officers executed a warrant at an address in Kennedy Crescent on Tuesday.

Over 150 cannabis plants, with an estimated minimum street value of £50,000, and over £5000 in cash were seized.
