Cannabis plants seized in Steelend drugs raid
CANNABIS plants worth £12,000 were seized in a police raid in Steelend on Friday.
The plants were found in a home by Fife Police's South West Fife Pro-Active Team, who were targeting a local drug dealer.
Equipment used to grow the plants was also found.
A man has been charged and will appear at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on 27th October.
Area community sergeant Jillian Neill, who led the operation, said, "Operations like this cannot be conducted without the assistance of the public who work and live in our communities and this is a great example that highlights people are willing to contact and engage with the police.
"With the public's help we can work together and rid our communities of illicit substances and the hugely detrimental wider impact they have."
She also thanked those who had provided police with recent information.
Anyone with information about drugs should contact Fife Police on 0845 600 5702 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
Meanwhile, two people are to be reported to in connection with a drug raid in Oakley.
Police swooped on a house in Oakley early Tuesday morning, and uncovered a quantity of drugs.
A 32-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman are to be reported to the procurator fiscal in Dunfermline.
Area community sergeant Darren Stewart said, "Fife Constabulary is committed to making a positive difference in the community we serve.
"We understand the negative impact drug dealers have on the community, and as such continue to actively target persons suspected of being involved in dealing illegal drugs.
He continued, "This has had a huge positive impact on the local community, which we intend to build on.
"We can only achieve these sort of results by people in the community letting us know what is going on in their area."
