Police have made 15 arrests in a series of drug raids across Dundee.
Officers confirmed that they had also seized thousands of pounds worth of heroin, cocaine, cannabis and amphetamine.
Raids have been staged across the city over the last few weeks as part of Operation Slate.
And area commander Chief Inspector Gary Ogilvie vowed further “relentless” breaking down of doors as officers work to limit the supply of drugs being sold in the city.
In an exclusive interview, Mr Ogilvie said: “Dealing with this type of crime is always at the forefront of the police in Dundee and Tayside’s day-to-day work.
“It remains a top priority.
“But, due to intelligence-led investigations into drug-related crime in the city there has been a concentrated focus on drug raids over the last few weeks.
“We have averaged up to two raids a day, which have been fairly successful with the recovery and the number of arrests made.”
The Tele understands that at least 10 properties have been targeted in areas including Craigiebank, Maryfield and Linlathen.
As part of their inquiries, officers have also recovered around £4,000 in cash.
Mr Ogilvie continued: “The raids have taken place at different times and in different locations throughout Dundee.
“Units hit properties depending on the intelligence — it could be at six in the morning, or it could be five in the evening.
“With the intelligence we gather before raids, we are able to hit at the right time when those committing the crime are in the property in possession of the quantities they are looking to sell throughout the city.”
Mr Ogilvie also said a clear message needs to go out to those involved in drug crimes.
He said: “We know who you are, we know where you live, and we will be paying you a visit very soon.”
Tackling the “top end” of drug criminality, police in Tayside are also working closely with forces throughout the rest of Scotland and the UK to deter those who supply and sell drugs.
“We are aware of organised crime gangs from England who have branches of their illegal drugs business in Scotland, including Dundee,” continued Mr Ogilvie.
“These gangs use Scottish cities as an additional customer base and we are continuing to work closely with forces throughout the UK to deter illegal drug trade.”
Police also urge members of the public to stay vigilant and help deter drug crime in their area.
Mr Ogilvie said: “The vast majority of the public are first class, law-abiding citizens and it is with their help we can work towards taking more drugs off the streets.”
Chief Superintendent Eddie Smith praised the work of police in Dundee.
He revealed police are on their way to beating the amount of drugs seized last year from April 2014 to March 2015.
He said: “We have had some fantastic results.
“We have already made significant inroads this year to improve on that figure .
“There have been some significant seizures already and we are already on our way to exceeding last year.
“Because drug dealing and drug possession is such a local priority for us, we’ve given an operational name, which is Operation Slate, so all our activity will be coordinated under that.
“Our local area commanders and DCIs are very much focused to carrying out as much activity as we possibly can.
“It’s very much down to working with our Scottish crime division colleagues within Police Scotland to coordinate that approach.
“We want to divert, deter, detect and disrupt criminal activities within the organised crime arena.”
