Dumfries and Galloway drugs operation makes seizures

Drugs with a street value of more than £7,000 have been seized in an ongoing operation in Dumfries and Galloway.

Operation Dulcet was launched earlier this month and has targeted homes in Dumfries and Stranraer.

Police said 14 drug-related offences had been detected and heroin, cannabis and diazepam seized.

Det Insp Mark Carruthers said the operation had been based on information from local communities and thanked them for their help.

"We commend the public for their assistance and would ask them to keep it up," he said.

"Working together we can make a difference in our communities."
