The Press and Journal (North-East) - - LOCAL NEWS -

A man has ap­peared in court af­ter drugs worth more than £126,000 were re­cov­ered in Aberdeen.

Of­fi­cers car­ried out an in­tel­li­gence-led op­er­a­tion in Fer­ry­hill on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon and, in ad­di­tion to find­ing co­caine, cannabis and heroin, also dis­cov­ered £18,500 in cash.

And, fol­low­ing this, Luke Marshall ap­peared in Aberdeen Sher­iff Court yes­ter­day, fac­ing a charge of be­ing in­volved in the sup­ply of drugs. The 22-yearold, whose ad­dress was given as Aberdeen, made no plea and was re­manded in cus­tody. He is ex­pected to re­turn to court within eight days.

Con­sta­ble Alan Gor­don, who led the in­quiry, urged any­one with in­for­ma­tion about drugs to con­tact of­fi­cers. He said: “We are al­ways grate­ful for the sup­port we have from the pub­lic and en­cour­age any­one with con­cerns re­gard­ing drugs to re­port th­ese to po­lice on 101.”
