Three in court over cannabis find

Three men are due to appear in court after being arrested in connection with a £20,000 cannabis find in the Scottish Borders.

The men aged 28, 31 and 35 were arrested under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

They were stopped by police whilst driving on the A1 at Cockburnspath on Thursday 7 November.

More than two and a half kilos of cannabis was found inside the Ford Galaxy car they were driving.

They will appear at Jedburgh Sheriff Court later today.

"Yesterday's seizure came about through the kind of routine road check that happen on a daily basis across the Scottish Borders roads network, and demonstrates the value of such activity, not only in enforcing road traffic legislation, but also in disrupting the activities of serious and organised criminals."

– Inspector Calum McDonald, Police Scotland
