A Dundee man was one of a trio convicted for dealing after almost £380,000 of drugs was found in the local area.
Michael Carroll (33) from Dundee, Lee Curtin (42) from Liverpool and Donald Gray (50) from Glasgow were arrested as part of Operation Silvara, an intelligence led operation led by the Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism Unit.
The drugs recovered in this operation totalled £12,500 of heroin, £280,000 of cannabis resin, £40,000 of other forms of cannabis, and £45,960 of high-purity cocaine. The overall street value was £378,460.
Detective Constable David Johnstone of the Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism Unit, said: “Tackling the illegal supply of controlled drugs remains a priority for Police Scotland and today’s conviction serves as a reminder that we will target those individuals who are intent on making money from this illegal trade.
“Operation Silvara was an intelligence-led operation which led to the recovery of over £15,000 in cash and over £220,000 of class A and class B controlled drugs which would have caused significant harm and misery to our communities if they had reached their intended destination.”
