COCAINE valued at up to £12,000 has been seized after police raided a house in Musselburgh.

Officers had received intelligence that the house was being used for the sale and supply of controlled drugs.

East Lothian Community Action Team (ELCAT) officers worked alongside members of the proactive crime team and national resources, including dog handlers, to execute a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant on Thursday.

During the search, items relating to the supply of controlled drugs were seized, as well as white powder, which tested positive for cocaine and was valued at up to £12,000.

A 36-year-old man was arrested and charged with being concerned in the supply of drugs and will appear at court at a later date.

Chief Inspector Neil Mitchell, Local Area Commander for East Lothian, said “The search at this address and subsequent recovery of the cocaine was only made possible with the support of the local community.

“We need the public to continue to report suspected drug dealing through the 101 system, to a local police officer or confidentially through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“This house search is the continuation of #OperationJuneau and our relentless efforts to reduce the harm caused to our communities through substance misuse.

“There are more searches planned and I urge the public to call us with information relating to suspect drug dealing as this increases our opportunities to make the county a safe place to live, work and visit.”
