Four people have been charged after an operation to tackle drugs misuse in an area of Aberdeen.
Three officers assisted by two special constables launched the initiative in Bucksburn during the evenings of Friday and Saturday.
Led by the Bucksburn Community Policing Team, the operation followed intelligence reports that people were abusing recreational drugs while within licensed premises.
As a result, 19 people were stopped and searched in terms of drugs legislation and four people were subsequently charged with possessing personal amounts of suspected class A and B drugs, which were seized and submitted for analysis.
Constable Michael Christiansen, who led the operation, said: “Illegal activity involving drugs is not welcome within licensed premises and it is hoped that operations like this send out a strong message that it will not be tolerated.
“People who choose to involve themselves in such activity could find themselves being banned from licensed premises and indeed with a criminal record.
“If anyone has further information in relation to such activity I would encourage them to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you wish to remain anonymous.”
