Police with sniffer dogs smashed their way into a Dundee property in a raid yesterday.
Two police cars, a police van and a dog unit were seen entering a flat on Pitarlie Road in Mid Craigie at around 10.45am.
Officers broke down the door of the flat and emerged from the address with large plastic bags which they carried to their marked vehicles.
A Police Scotland spokesman confirmed officers were carrying out a search at the address, but was unable to say what the purpose of the raid was.
One witness said several police appeared at a block of flats.
She said: “I saw two police cars parked outside. There were two policemen who were later joined by another officer.
“They had bags of stuff.
“I don’t know if it was evidence.
“They had seethrough bags they were taking away.
“There was one bag to each group of policemen.
“I’m not sure what was in them.”
Another resident, who did not wish to be named, said: “I saw two police cars, one van and a police dog.” A police spokesman said: “Officers executed a search warrant on Pitarlie Road at 10.42am today.”
He was unable to confirm if anyone had been arrested in connection with the raid.
Last month residents at the same block of flats on Pitarlie Road complained about being contacted at all hours by people seeking to buy drugs.
In response, a polite notice was placed on the door telling would-be drug users to contact dealers by phone and to meet elsewhere, as CCTV had been installed at the premises.
