THREE men and a woman have been arrested and charged following the recovery of drugs and money during an operation in Lerwick yesterday (Thursday).
Officers seized cannabis with an estimated value of £24,000 along with £30,000 in cash when searching a property at Nederdale on Thursday afternoon.
Three men – aged 34, 36, and 59 – and a 42-year-old woman have been arrested and charged in connection with the incident.
They are expected to appear at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Monday.
Chief inspector Stuart Clemenson said: “Drug misuse brings nothing but misery to our communities.
“This recovery highlights our continued commitment to disrupting drug activity and supply within our communities.
“I want to reassure people on the island that we are using every tool and tactic at our disposal to remove these illegal substances from our streets and to deal with those responsible.”
