Detective Inspector Paul McVeigh from Titan, said:
“Today’s operation follows on from last month’s strike day in which a number of arrests were made and demonstrates the ongoing commitment of Titan to target those involved in the supply and distribution of Class A drugs.
“Titan exists to tackle and take down the most serious, hardened and organised criminals who pose the more serious threat to the communities. But we cannot do this work alone and we are grateful for our colleagues, particularly those at Police Scotland, for assisting and supporting us during this wide-ranging and ongoing investigation.
“Our message to those involved in drug supply is that you cannot escape justice and there are no borders, we will work with other forces to relentlessly pursue those profiting from serious organised crime.
“No-one should have to put up with drug dealing and the associated violence and gun crime it often brings.
“We will work with our communities to improve the quality of life for decent, law-abiding people and I would urge people to keep helping us do that by reporting any drug dealing or gun crime to the police or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
