Detective Inspector Ian Ross said: "This is a significant recovery and our communities are safer having these drugs out of circulation. 

"They cannot be sold and they cannot bring harm and misery to people's lives.

"This was a pre-planned operation and shows our determination to combat drug abuse.

"I would urge anyone with information about drugs in their community to contact police and be assured that action will be taken."
