Liverpool man due in court after drugs and cash seized in Fraserburgh

A man from Liverpool has been charged after drugs and cash were seized from a property in a North-east town.

Officers discovered cannabis, drug-related paraphernalia and more than £1,000 in cash at a property in the Rowan Grove area of Fraserburgh yesterday.

A 23-year-old from Liverpool, who was allegedly using the address, is due to appear at Peterhead Sheriff Court today.

Detective Inspector Allen Shaw said: “I would like to thank those who provided information which led to this action being taken.”

He added: “Proactive action is taken on a daily basis across the North-east to rid drugs from our communities and to tackle the unwanted effects that come from the sale and supply of illegal substances.

“We will continue to target people who think it is OK to come into our communities to commit such crime and in particular those who exploit vulnerable people and use their homes to store or deal drugs, known as cuckooing.

“We are urging people to be aware of the warning signs that such activity may be happening in your neighbourhood and report any concerns to us.

“In particular you may have noticed new associates or increased visitors at a particular house, or an increased number of vehicles outside a property including taxis or hire cars.

“We also need the support of local communities to let us know their concerns so we can target our resources to the right places at the right times.

“Please contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to remain anonymous.”
