Police in Glenrothes have seized cannabis estimated to be worth £6,000 in a raid on a house in the Caskieberran area of the town.
Officers arrested a 52-year-old man who was subsequently charged with offences under the Misuse of Drugs Act and will appear in court at a later date.
The seizure marks the latest in a number of successes for the Glenrothes Community Team since it was formed in January this year, as officers continue to target those involved in drug criminality in the town.
Community Sergeant Kenny Greig said: “This once again shows our commitment to tackling individuals involved in the sale and supply of controlled drugs.
These drugs were destined for our streets and we are not going to let people make a substantial income from this type of criminality.
“These types of crimes can have a significant detrimental effect on the quality of life for residents and this behaviour is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”

Sergeant Greig added that there would be no let up on targeting drug criminality in the area, adding: “This type of positive and pro-active police action ensures that any persons prepared to be involved in crimes of this nature are dealt with in a robust and forthright manner.”
He also thanked the public for providing information which has led to the arrest and seizure and added: “Any member of the public that suspects anyone is involved in them cultivation of cannabis or the sale and supply of controlled drugs should telephone Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800555111.
“They need not supply any statement to the police or even tell us who they are, just tell us whom is dealing drugs or where the cannabis plantation is and we will do the rest.”
