Three men have been charged following a police operation in a north-east town.
Officers targeted a number of areas in Kemnay and Inverurie after concerns were raised by local residents.
As a result a 17-year-old and a 27-year-old were charged in relation to the alleged possession of cannabis.
And a 21-year-old was charged with allegedly possessing heroin.
All three will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
Sergeant Craig McNeill of the Garioch community policing team said: “Successful enforcement is only possible where we are told of issues and we’d like to thank those in our communities for their continued support and information.
“We will continue to target those who choose to involve themselves with drugs and would encourage anyone with information to report these to us on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to remain anonymous.
“We’ve had a number of increased patrols in the area over the last week and these will continue. If you have concerns you can also speak to any officer.”
