Man charged as heroin worth £20,000 seized in raid
Another man was arrested less than 24 hours earlier when a number of cannabis plants were found.
A man has been arrested after police seized a large quantity of heroin in Fife.
The 51-year-old has now been charged in connection with the class A drugs that police say have a street value of £20,000.
The heroin was recovered when Divisional Pro-Active Unit Officers conducted a search warrant at an address in the Cairns Street East area of Kirkcaldy on Wednesday.
In a separate incident another man was arrested less than 24 hours earlier when a number of cannabis plants said to be worth £2,500 were found after officers executed a search warrant at an address on St Margaret Street, Dunfermline.
Operation Prospect, aimed at tackling drug misuse, was highlighted by communities as a local policing priority for Fife.
Intelligence led enforcement activity has now resulted in two men being charged in connection with drug offences.
Detective Inspector Lynne McQuade said: "These arrests are as a result of proactive work by officers under Operation Prospect, the initiative used across Fife to tackle drug crime.
"We are committed to working with our partners throughout the Kingdom to make sure that those who are involved in the supply of illegal substances are targeted, preventing these harmful substances making their way into our local communities.
"Drug crime will not be tolerated and we will always ensure that those involved are robustly dealt with and those responsible brought before the courts."
