Woman to appear in court after large drugs recovery in Bannockburn
A woman has been charged after drugs worth almost £200,000 were recovered yesterday, during a raid in Bannockburn.
Police found Etizolam – or ‘fake valium’ – with a street value of £156,000.
Officers also recovered £20,000 worth of heroin and £20,000 worth of amphetamine, cannabis and MDMA, from the property in Douglas Street.
The 48-year-old woman is expected to appear at Stirling Sheriff Court later (5th Feb)
Detective Sergeant Jamie Hughes from Forth Valley’s Proactive CID said, “This is a significant quantity of drugs that have been recovered before they could be distributed on our streets and I would like to thank the local community of Bannockburn for their assistance in providing vital information that helped us carry out this proactive enforcement activity.
“Drug crime of any sort will not be tolerated within Forth Valley and whenever intelligence is received it is appropriately assessed and acted upon to bring offenders to justice.
