TWO people have been arrested after a drugs bust in Alloa yesterday.

Police raided a property in the town’s Maple Court which led to the discovery of an estimated £5,000 worth of heroin.

Officers say there was also cannabis and Diazepam found during the operation, along with a quantity of cash.

A man and a woman were then arrested and appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court this morning charged with the offences.

Mark Murphy, the area’s community inspector, said that tackling drug crime was a priority for his officers.

He said: "In response to concerns about drug crime in the town centre, local officers have been conducting activity in the area in recent days with the support of the national Safer Communities Team.

"We know that tackling drug offences and related criminality is a priority to our communities, and therefore these issues will continue to be treated as a priority by local officers.

"We'd urge anyone with concerns to raise these to us, as all information received will be assessed and acted upon wherever appropriate, by calling Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."

A Police Scotland statement confirmed: “A 28-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman were arrested in connection with drug offences after £5,000 worth of heroin, herbal cannabis, Diazepam tablets and cash was seized by officers.

“The Class A and B drugs were recovered from a property on Maple Court in Alloa on Thursday, March 14 . The two were due to appear at Alloa Sheriff Court on Friday, March 15.”
