Cannabis with a street value of £25,000 has been found in a Cambuslang home.
Officers stormed a house on Cairnswell Place, leaving residents in the street stunned.
A 59-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the discovery.
Residents have spoken of their shock after police raided a neighbour’s home to find a cannabis cultivation with an estimated street value of £25,000.
Johnstone Wright, 59, was arrested and detained in police custody in connection with alleged drugs offences on Monday, March 27.
Officers stormed the house on Cairnswell Place at around 7.10am and were seen exiting the property with “tall” plants.
Neighbours were stunned when they woke up to find police vehicles filling the small road which they say was out of character for their neighbourhood.
One resident, who wished not to be named, said: “I was shocked. You don’t expect to see it. It is quite a quiet street.
“There was a police car there in the morning and I thought someone had died.
“Then I saw some of the electricity guys coming in and then there was a lot of police activity.
“They chapped my door to ask if they could leave their van in the drive and then they moved it later and started moving the plants out. There were quite a lot of plants and they were tall.”
Another neighbour said: “The police came and went all day. There were two cars in the morning and a van.
“It’s out of character for this street. You never see a police car in here. The only time you would is when someone has died.”
She added: “I didn’t see him being taken away. I never heard a thing.
“He’s lived here all his life and so have I.”
One man, who was out at the time of the raid, said: “I work shifts, I’m out at 5am in the morning so I never saw a thing. It’s a quiet area, nothing happens here.”
Wright appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Tuesday, March 28 in connection with alleged drug offences and was released on bail.
