Police officers recovered drugs with a street value of £5000 in Inverness.

Drugs with an estimated street value of £5000 were recovered by police officers following a raid in an Inverness neighbourhood.

An 18-year-old man was subsequently arrested and charged.

The drugs, which included crack cocaine and heroin, were recovered when officers executed a search warrant in the city's Raigmore area on Thursday.

The man appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court the following day and was released on bail.

Detective Inspector Ritchie Macrae, of Burnett Road police station in Inverness, said: "This latest recovery underlines our ongoing commitment to tackling ‘County Lines’ drug supply which targets some of the most vulnerable members of the local community."

Anyone with information about ongoing drug-related crime in their local area should contact the police via 101, or alternatively make an anonymous report to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
