DRUGS worth more than £50,000 have been seized in Buckie.
Police detained two men and one woman after a search warrant was executed, on a home in the Harbour Street area of the coastal town, on Wednesday this week.
According to police, amphetamines worth up to £48,000 were found in the property. Around £4,000 of cannabis resin was also discovered.
One of the men taken into custody, 49-year-old David Grant, whose address was only given as Moray, appeared yesterday (Thursday) in Elgin Sheriff Court. He gave no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody.
The other man, aged 39, and the 31-year-old woman were released.
A Crown Office spokesman said: "We can confirm that the Procurator Fiscal at Elgin received a report concerning a 39-year-old male and a 31-year-old female in connection with an incident on 30 January 2013.
"Following full and careful consideration of the report by the Procurator Fiscal, they were liberated pending further inquiries and did not appear in court."
Speaking after the drugs seizure, Detective Inspector Norman Stevenson said: "This was a significant haul of dangerous substances which could have fetched more than £50,000 on the streets.
"This seizure should serve as a warning that Moray remains a hostile place for drug dealers.
"Under Operation Moravia, we have taken a large amount of dangerous substances off our streets and out of circulation, and this will continue right across the region."
