A woman has been arrested and charged following the recovery of thousands of pounds worth of Class A drugs.

Officers visited a property on Trinity Street in Hawick, the Borders, as part of a routine check into a separate matter at about 1.15pm on Friday.

It was then when they found a quantity of Class A drugs, with an estimated street value of more than £16,000.

A 56-year-old woman was arrested and charged and is expected to appear in court on Monday.

Chief Inspector Vincent Fisher, area commander for the Scottish Borders said: “This recovery, and the good work involved from our local officers, is another demonstration of our dedication to remove illegal drugs from our communities and deal with those responsible.
