Three charged over Edinburgh drugs seizure

Three men have been charged after cocaine and diamorphine were found at a house in Broomhouse Grove in Edinburgh.

Officers seized cocaine with an estimated street value of £17,500, diamorphine with an estimated street value of £700 and a small amount of cannabis from the property.

Two men, aged 27, 22, appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday and were remanded in custody.

Another man, aged 48, was released on bail following Friday's raid.

Det Insp Stuart Harkness said: "Police Scotland continues to target serious organised crime in Edinburgh and officers have again seized harmful drugs before they could impact upon our communities.

"The public play a vital role in helping us take drugs off our streets by coming forward and providing us with information.

"I would urge anyone wishing to report drug crime, or associated offences in their local area to contact us immediately."
