A man has been charged and about 450 cannabis plants worth £100,000 have been seized from a property in Edinburgh.

Officers carried out a search of a house in Ferry Road on Thursday as part of Lothian and Borders Police's Operation Adrenalin.

A 36-year-old man has been arrested and charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

The man was due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Friday.

A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman said: "Once again, the intelligence we receive from the public has proven invaluable as we continue to dismantle the operations of organised crime groups operating with the city.

"This is a sizeable recovery and we are delighted to have seized these plants before they could be sold within our communities.

"Anyone who has information concerning drug-related criminal activity in their local area should contact police immediately."
