Police seized more than £500,000 worth of heroin and cocaine during a series of planned drugs raids in Fife.

A 26-year-old man from Kirkcaldy is expected to appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court tomorrow (Fri), in connection to the discovery of the class A drugs.

Fife Constabulary confirmed it was part of an ongoing intelligence led operation designed to tackle serious organised crime.

Detective Superintendent Garry McEwan, head of crime management for Fife, said: “The targeting of those involved in drug dealing and organised crime remains a very high priority for Fife Constabulary.

“The misery caused to local communities by this form of criminality cannot be understated, and Fife Constabulary is fully committed to use all available resources to target, disrupt and detect those involved in its supply and distribution as set out in the Force Policing Plan.

“Class A drugs cause significant harm within our local communities and it is these communities that I appeal to now.

“Contact the police if you have information about those involved in serious crime, including drug dealing and we will react and when possible arrest those criminals involved.

“In relation to this particular seizure I would again like to thank our communities for their ongoing support and would urge that members of the public continue to alert us as to their concerns and provide information that would assist us in removing harmful drugs from our streets.

“We will listen and investigate what the public tells us.”
