£18,000 worth of cannabis seized

Police in Orkney can confirm that a quantity of cannabis with a “street” value of around £18,000 has been recovered from a vehicle in the St Margaret’s Hope area on South Ronaldsay.

The recovery was made following a search by the Orkney Drugs Dog on the morning of Thursday, June 6.

A 40-year-old man has been charged in connection with the recovery and is expected to appear at Kirkwall Sheriff Court today (Friday).

Inspector David Hall said: “There is no place for drugs in our islands and we work hard to make Orkney a hostile environment for anyone involved in this harmful trade.

“I am grateful for the support of the Orkney Drugs Dog charity in operations such as this.

“Our local communities have a key role to play in our work and I would urge anyone with concerns or information to let us know.

“You can call Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to pass on information anonymously.”
