Con­sta­ble Cameron MacDon­ald, who led the oper­a­tion, said: ‘ This search was made pos­si­ble as a di­rect re­sult of in­for­ma­tion ob­tained from the lo­cal com­mu­nity and the re­cov­ery should serve as a warn­ing to those in the area in­tent on sup­ply­ing drugs that we will con­tinue to make Skye and Lochalsh a hos­tile en­vi­ron­ment for drug deal­ers.’
