A YOUNG man has been charged after allegedly being caught with a haul of drugs including cannabis in an address in Irvine.

Irvine cops say the 20-year-old was arrested after officers returned to raid the Fullarton property – after suspicions were raised during an earlier police visit.

The young man was charged with a report to be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Officers carrying out routine enquiries at an address in the Fullarton area of Irvine noted several bags of herbal material within said property.

“A sheriff search warrant was obtained – and a quantity of controlled drugs, including herbal cannabis, were seized.

“A 20-year-old man has been arrested, cautioned and charged in connection with the find – and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

“Police Scotland will continue to target and disrupt drug supply in all our communities.

"If you have information or concerns about drugs within the local community, do not hesitate to contact police on 101 - or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111."
