Police have seized more than a kilo of alleged class A drugs during a raid at an Irvine house.

Officers from the Ayrshire Proactive Policing Team stormed the property in Sloan Avenue on Friday, March 8 and discovered a “significant quantity” of Class A and Class B drugs.

A 31-year-old man who was found within the property was cautioned and charged with alleged drugs possession and being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs.

The raid was part of a a North Ayrshire-wide crackdown on drug dealing with officers executing two search warrants on the same day.

The second raid was in Glasgow Street in Ardrossan where police forced entry and arrested a 26-year-old man following the alleged discovery of a quantity of what is believed to be Class A and Class B drugs.

A police spokesperson for Ayrshire Division says: “We are committed to tackling issues of local concern and work with communities to reduce the harmful impact of drugs misuse. We will target those involved in the sale, supply and production and I would urge anyone who has concerns about drugs in their area to contact us.”
