Two men aged 22 and 59 are due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court after heroin and cocaine worth around £300,000 was found during police raids in Hawkhill Close and Restalrig Circus on Wednesday.

Detective Inspector Dougie Telfer, from the East Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism Unit, said: “The public have made it abundantly clear that they will not tolerate drug crime in their communities and they continue to provide us with information that once again, we have acted upon resulting in a sizeable recovery of heroin and cocaine.

“Tackling organised crime, including drug offences, remains one of Police Scotland’s top priorities and we will utilise all resources at our disposal to bring those responsible to justice.

“If you would like to report ongoing criminality in your area then please contact us on 101 or make an anonymous report to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
