Drugs haul at port

DRUGS worth more than £325,000 have been recovered after the search of a lorry at Loch Ryan Port in Cairnryan.

Officers searched a vehicle at 10 pm last Thursday night and recovered around 33kg of cannabis and 5kg of cocaine.

A 57-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with the recovery and was due to appear at Stranraer Sheriff Court today, Monday.

Detective Inspector Graeme Robertson, of Dumfries and Galloway Division CID, said: “This is a significant recovery, and represents joint working between Dumfries CID and officers at Loch Ryan Port, part of Border Policing Command.

“Police Scotland is committed to removing illegal substances from our communities and will take all measures to disrupt those involved.”

“Anyone with concerns about drugs in their community can contact Police Scotland via 101, or calling Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
