Cops find stash of drugs and weapons

Paisley Daily Express - - Pink Panties Flasher Hit With Home Curfew -

Po­lice re­cov­ered a haul of drugs and of­fen­sive weapons – in­clud­ing air guns – dur­ing a raid on a Pais­ley flat.

Spe­cial­ist anti-vi­o­lence cops swooped on the flat in Ward­house Road in Glenburn and seized al­most £ 5,000 worth of speed and cannabis.

They also re­cov­ered six un­li­censed air guns and a num­ber of dan­ger­ous bladed weapons dur­ing the op­er­a­tion.

It’s be­lieved that the haul of weapons in­cluded a cross­bow.

A cannabis cul­ti­va­tion and a stash of am­phet­a­mines were dis­cov­ered within the flat as part of a week long Po­lice Scot­land clamp down.

The flat was searched on Mon­day, Novem­ber 6 at around 11.30am, with of­fi­cers de­lighted with the re­cov­ery

In­spec­tor Tracy Harkins said: “I am de­lighted with the suc­cess of this op­er­a­tion which was car­ried out by our lo­cal anti-vi­o­lence team as part of a week long ini­tia­tive.

“In to­tal, 12 weapons were re­cov­ered. Although there is no ev­i­dence to sug­gest that any of the weapons have been used dur­ing the com­mis­sion of a crime, this seizure en­sures that such weapons are re­moved from so­ci­ety and pre­vents them be­ing used in such a man­ner.”

A Po l i c e S c o t l a n d spokes­woman said a 37-yearold man was ar­rested in con­nec­tion with al­leged drugs and weapons of­fences.
