Two men charged after golf club drug raid

A HISTORIC golf club was among premises raided as part of a police operation that netted £500,000 worth of cocaine.

Two men were arrested and charged following raids on the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club in East Lothian - which was founded more than 200 years ago and is the fifth oldest club in the world - and a children's dance school in nearby Prestonpans.

Kenneth Glen, 24, of Dalkeith, Midlothian, the professional's assistant at the golf club, and Gary Yorke, 44, of Dalkeith, were arrested and charged in connection with drug offences.

More than 100 officers were deployed on a string of raids across Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian, West Lothian and Lanarkshire, with 11.7 kilos of cocaine recovered. A spokesman for the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club said no drugs were discovered on the premises.

Both Glen and Yorke have appeared in private at Edinburgh Sheriff Court. Glen was released on bail. Yorke was remanded in custody.
