A man and woman have made a private court appearance in connection following the discovery of a major cannabis farm in the Scottish Borders.

Around 200 plants and up to four kilos of herbal cannabis, with a total estimated value of
£175,000, were recovered following a police swoop on the remote property in the village of Heriot last Thursday morning.

Edward Dorman, 51, from Heriot, and 49-year-old Hayley Miln from Galashiels, have been charged with
producing a controlled drug and being concerned in the supply of cannabis.

They made no plea or declaration at Jedburgh Sheriff Court and had their cases continued for further
examination.

The pair were released on bail.

It is the third major cannabis cultivation to be discovered in the Borders this year.

A fortnight ago 500 cannabis plants were found in a former convenience store in Selkirk.

A similar number of plants were found earlier this year in Hawick.

Chief Inspector Andy McLean, of Police Scotland said: "Once again, vital information from the
public has resulted in a sizeable drugs recovery and we are actively pursuing
those responsible for the production of this cannabis.

"Our communities continue to make it clear that they do not want drug dealers
operating in their area and through enforcement activity such as this we
demonstrate that the Scottish Borders is no safe haven for those involved in
drug crime. 

"Rest assured that any information provided to us is treated with in the strictest
confidence and appropriately acted upon."
