Police in the Highlands and Islands have made 16 significant drug recoveries in the past four weeks across the north of Scotland.
Activity by Police Scotland officers has resulted in seizures in the Inverness, Shetland, Ross-shire, Lochaber, Badenoch & Strathspey and Western Isles areas over the past few weeks.
The activity has resulted in tens of thousands of pounds worth of illegal drugs being intercepted before they are sold on.
Detective Chief Inspector Michael Sutherland said: "We work every day of the year to intercept drugs bound for the streets of the Highlands and Islands and these recoveries are just the latest example of that.
"We will never become complacent and the information we receive on a daily basis shows that we have the support of our communities in tackling the trade in illegal drugs.”
He continued: “We are grateful to everyone who helps by providing us with information - none of these recoveries would be possible without your help.
"We will always act on intelligence and will use it to take drugs off the streets and report anybody suspected of being involved in this illegal trade.
"Our message to those intent on dealing drugs is simple - keep looking over your shoulder because you could be next on our list."
Notable recent recoveries include the seizure of approximately £25,000 worth of heroin, MDMA, cocaine and cannabis being recovered from two properties in the Lilac Grove and Lomond Way areas of Inverness, resulting in a 31-year-old man being reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
Earlier in November, officers recovered quantities of heroin and crack cocaine worth around £3,000 were recovered following a search in the Crown area of the city.
The same day, a quantity of heroin valued at approximately £1,600 was recovered from a house in the Muir of Ord area. This resulted in a 57-year-old woman being reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
