Teenager charged after almost £500,000 of cannabis seized
A teenager has been arrested and charged after nearly £500,000 of cannabis was recovered in the Borders.
Officers searched an address in Curror Street, Selkirk, on Tuesday and discovered the drugs worth approximately £489,000.
A 19-year-old man is due to appear at Selkirk Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
Chief Inspector Stuart Reid said: “This was a large-scale recovery which has resulted in a major cultivation being taken out of circulation.
“The supply and misuse of drugs devastates lives and has an adverse impact on our whole society.
“Tackling the sale and supply of controlled drugs is a top priority for Police Scotland and the disruption of all drug-related activity is of the utmost importance to us.
“We continue to work to hold those who supply drugs in our community to account and bring them to justice.”
