Police today confirmed that a man has been charged in connection with what they have described as cannabis cultivation.

It follows a raid on premises in Hawick’s Cheviot Road last Thursday.

Officers say around 15 plants were seized and have put the value of the Class B drug found at around £2,500.

According to the police, items of cultivation equipment were also found at the property.

Police Scotland said a 20-year-old man was detained and charged yesterday and will now be reported to the procurator fiscal.

Inspector Carol Wood said: “Our local communities in Hawick have made it very clear that those involved in drug crime are not welcome and we will continue to act on information from the public to remove harmful drugs from the streets.”
