Armed police undertook a major operation this morning near Ardentinny. Some 40-50 officers, including a dog unit and underwater unit descended on Glenfinart Caravan Park at around 10am. The area was also circled by a helicopter.
The main road from Ardentinny to Loch Eck was closed for several hours while police with shields and arms undertook a search of caravans and properties. Several boxes were removed from the site and two women were escorted to a police car.
We understand that a quantity of drugs was recovered and that two men aged 42 and 46 are “assisting officers with enquiries”.
Police could still be seen in the vicinity late this afternoon.
