Two men have been arrested and £100,000 of cocaine, cannabis and ecstasy seized in a police raid.

A gun was also discovered in the ''intelligence-led operation'' in Ayrshire on Saturday.

Officers searched two men in Hill Street, Kilmarnock, at around 1.15pm and found drugs and a four-figure sum of cash.

Police then later searched a property in Cunninghame Crescent, Saltcoats, where cocaine, cannabis and ecstasy was recovered, along with the firearm.

Two men, aged 26 and 61, have been arrested over the find.

Detective Inspector Steven Wallace said: ''Controlled drugs worth a six-figure sum are now off the streets of Ayrshire and will no longer have the ability to cause harm to people in our communities.

''Our officers work every day to disrupt individuals who engage in drugs activity and will act on any information from members of the public, so if you have any concerns of this nature please do come and speak to us.

''Anyone with information can contact their local police station via 101, or alternatively you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.''
