Operation Emperor Arrests

TWENTY-FIVE alleged drug-dealers appeared at Stranraer Sheriff Court over the course of Monday and Tuesday following Operation Emperor - the weekend police blitz on the local drug trade.

In total, 28 people were arrested as a result of the massive operation which involved one hundred police officers from Dumfries and Galloway and Strathclyde Forces some of whom the Free Press understands worked undercover in local drugs circles for the last year.

Of the 25 who appeared in court this week to face drugs-related charges, 15 are from Stranraer and the surrounding area. The remaining three alleged dealers who were arrested will be brought to court at a later date.
