Police Scotland officers have been carrying out "proactive enforcement activity in Caithness as part of an ongoing commitment to tackling drug offences".
On Monday (November 23) officers carried out intelligence-led searches of two properties in Macrae Street and Murchison Street in Wick.
Quantities of cannabis and white powder, which has been sent for analysis, were seized from inside the addresses and inquiries are ongoing to identify those involved in the possession of these items.
Detective Inspector Craig Still from North Highland CID said: “The public within Caithness have provided us with information relating to drug possession and drug dealing and we have acted upon it. I’m grateful to our communities for this very useful intelligence.
“The harm caused by drug abuse cannot be understated and we are committed to removing drug dealers from our streets.
“If you have information about ongoing drug crime in your area please contact us via 101, or, alternatively, make an anonymous report to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
