DRUGS offences have kept Carrick police busy in Maybole as two men are reported for possession.

One 36-year-old Maybole man was caught growing cannabis at his town centre property when officers conducted a warranted search at around 9pm on Thursday. He is expected to appear at Ayr Sheriff Court within the the next seven weeks.

And on Friday a second Maybole man was found in possession of cocaine in the Greenside area of the town.

The 27-year-old was caught with a small amount of the class A drug at around 9pm on Friday, when Strathclyde Police support unit officers working in Maybole as part of Ayrshire-wide Operation Myriad.

Officers stopped the man when he was observed acting suspiciously, and he was reported to the Procurator Fiscal under misuse of drugs legislation.
