Police Reports to Edderton Community Council Meetings
January 10th, 2017: Only an e-mailed report was provided. Very little has happened in the past month involving the police; the only concern being drugs.
December 6th, 2016: Over the past few weeks a number of complaints over abandoned vehicles have been investigated. Speed checks have been carried out on the A836 near Edderton, though no speeding offences were observed. There has been one breath test in the vicinity, with a negative result, and several drug offences were detected in the wider area with 26 users and suppliers being charged.
June 14th, 2016: The following report was given by PS530 James Mackay.
1. No crimes have been reported from within the Edderton area since the last meeting.
2. There was a significant fire on the north side of the Dornoch Bridge last week which caused the bridge to be closed and a diversion through Edderton for northbound vehicles. This was for a short period only and hopefully it did not cause any significant issues in the village. As regards the fire itself, there is nothing to suggest any criminality and a discarded cigarette or similar item is the most likely cause.
3. At the beginning of May enforcement was carried out across the Highlands whereby 16 Sheriff Misuse of Drugs Act search warrants were craved, granted and executed. During the course of the week 17 persons were reported in relation to Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 offences which include six cautioned and charged with drug supply offences. Seizures included Heroin 129g, Cannabis Resin 605g, Herbal Cannabis 12g, Cocaine 1g and Amphetamine 100g, which together has a street value of £17,205. Although Edderton was not the target of any of these warrants, the area is likely affected by drugs to some extent and members are encouraged to report any drugs activity or concerns to the Police.
