Police have seized machetes, knives, 80,000 counterfeit cigarettes and £11,500 worth of heroin during a crackdown in Dundee.
Officers say they have made 65 arrests in relation to a number of alleged crimes involving violence, drugs and domestic abuse during the second week of Operation Quest.
Tayside Police Division said they have been carrying out “high-visibility activity” with patrols focusing on areas where drugs and violent crime is most prominent.
High-visibility patrols, which the force says are “intelligence-led”, have taken place in Whitfield, Douglas, Lochee, Kirkton, Stobswell, Maryfield, Hilltown and West Ferry.
In the past week eight drugs or stolen property search warrants were executed, with
seven “personal searches” resulting in drugs or weapons being recovered.
Baseball bats, knives and CS spray were also among the weapons obtained by officers.
The £11,500 heroin haul was discovered by police at a home in Charleston.
The 80,000 cigarettes were discovered at a home in Maryfield, along with 690g of amphetamine and thousands of pounds in cash which officers allege was “obtained though illicit activity”.
The force said inquiries from intelligence obtained during the second week of the operation are “ongoing”.
Chief Inspector David McIntosh, Dundee local area commander, said: “Police Scotland has a key role in contributing to the wider well-being of our communities.
“Over the last week, uniformed and detective officers have been involved in the second week of activity linked to Operation Quest, a local violence reduction operation.
“Officers have been engaged in intelligence lead, focused activity which has been extremely productive with some notable results.
“Tackling violence, engaging with the community and partners, to reduce the fear and impact of crime, is vitally important to both local and national policing. In doing so officers will relentlessly pursue those involved in the supply of controlled drugs and violent crime.
