Residents at a quiet sheltered housing complex were left stunned when police carried out a drugs raid at the property.
Officers found heroin worth an estimated £12,700 during the operation at the property in Douglasfield Crescent.
Two men, both aged 52, were arrested.
One of them has already appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court.
The other was released while police carry out further inquiries.
Resident Beverley Smith, 46, who lives with her mother Jan, 63, watched the drama unfold.
She said: “Police were here and they had a battering ram but never actually used it, they walked into the house.
“We saw one van and one car at the start. Then another two came about an hour later.
“Then there were cars constantly coming and going until about 8.15pm. They had clear bags which looked like evidence bags and were loading them into the cars.
“They were all wearing gloves.”
Another resident, who has lived in the Bield Housing complex for more than eight years, said: “There were police cars everywhere.
“I saw the police with the thing for smashing the door in but it wasn’t used.
“This bit is quiet on the whole because it’s mostly older, retired people in sheltered accommodation.”
The woman said officers at the scene told them they would be returning to the housing complex next week to discuss any fears or issues the residents were having about crime or antisocial behaviour.
A spokesman said: “Police Scotland attended at an address in Douglasfield Crescent around 6.40pm on Tuesday July 24 and executed a drugs search warrant.
“As a result of inquiries made, a quantity of heroin with a potential street value of approximately £12,700 was recovered, along with other substances.”
Rodney Walker, 52, of Douglasfield Crescent, has appeared in private at Dundee Sheriff Court on petition to face allegations he was concerned in the supply of heroin at his home address on July 24.
He made no plea and was remanded in custody, after bail was not sought by his defence agent. The case was continued by Sheriff James McDonald for further examination.
