Dundee police discovered drugs or weapons on 19 people during “stop and searches” carried out across a two-week crackdown on violence and drug-related crime.

Tayside Police Division say they have apprehended 20 people, executed two drug search warrants, and recovered heroin, “street valium” etizolam, cocaine, cannabis and illegally-obtained medication as part of Operation Quest.

Officers also found drugs or weapons on 19 people during a total of 68 “stop and searches” carried out across the Hilltown, city centre, Douglas, St Mary’s and Lochee.

Weapons found include a lock knife and a riding crop fitted with a blade.

The most recent drugs search warrant was executed in Douglas on Wednesday morning and resulted in a man, 29, and woman, 23, being arrested on drug distribution charges.

Police also carried out 80 visits to licensed premises across the city during the operation.

A police statement reads: “The operation will continue for the rest of this week, with similar activity as described above planned for the coming days.”
