Arrests in Stirling and Fallin after drugs seizures

Drugs squad officers have arrested eight people after a series of raids in Stirling and Fallin.

Five properties were searched during the operation, leading to the discovery of Class A drugs with an estimated street value of £60,000.

Central Scotland Police said officers had found cocaine, cannabis and valium, as well as equipment associated with drugs.

Five women and three men were arrested and are due to appear in court.

A ninth man is also the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal, police said.

The arrests follow 12 others made over drugs discoveries in recent days, during a separate operation in Clackmannanshire.
