Man due in court on firearms charge after Falkirk raid

A man has been charged with a firearms offence following a police raid in Falkirk.

The 28-year-old is due to appear in court on Monday after officers executed warrants in Firs Street on 24 June.

A man and woman, aged 23 and 20, will also appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court after heroin worth £5,000 was recovered from a property in the street.

Police Scotland said it was committed to removing weapons, including firearms, from communities.

Det Sgt Forbes Wilson said: "Also the distribution of controlled drugs at any level will not be tolerated and we will continue to use all resources at our disposal to identify those offenders responsible and remove them from our communities.

"Information provided to police can help recover such illegal items, arrest offenders and bring them to justice."
