A TWENTY two year old man is due to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on drugs supply charges after he was arrested at the city’s ferry terminal on Sunday.
Heroin and cannabis worth an estimated street value of £37,000 were recovered in the police operation.
The class A and class B drugs were bound for Shetland, Police Scotland said.
The recovery followed an intelligence-led operation by CID officers and Police Scotland’s dog unit.
Enquiry officer John Hampton said: “Tackling illegal drugs and removing them from our communities is a priority for Police Scotland.
“Part of that is targeting the transport routes used to courier drugs in and out of the North East – the ferry terminal in Aberdeen being one of those.”
Hampton added that police relied on support from the public and urged anyone with information about the supply of drugs to contact police on telephone 101 or the anonymous Crimestoppers line 0800 555 111.
