Second arrest after more drugs seized

SHETLAND police have made their second major seizure of drugs in two days, arresting a second man after a house search uncovered cannabis and amphetamine.

Police said the drugs were found following the arrest of 45 year old Innes Irvine, of Lerwick, on Wednesday outside the town’s Bell’s Brae primary school.

He was charged on Thursday in private at Lerwick Sheriff Court with being concerned in the supply of cannabis with a potential street value of £18,000, as well as obstructing officers and threatening or abusive behaviour.

The following day police followed this up with the search of a house in Lerwick where they say they found suspected herbal cannabis worth £3,500.

A further search of a vehicle using the Dogs Against Drugs charity’s sniffer dog recovered £5,000 of suspected amphetamine.

Police said a second 45 year old has been released from custody. He will be reported to the procurator fiscal and is expected to appear in court next week.
