Po­lice seize £336,000 cannabis haul

Evening Times - - NEWS -

CANNABIS worth £336,000 has been re­cov­ered by po­lice dur­ing a raid at an in­dus­trial unit.

Of­fi­cers seized more than 33kg of the drug from Struther­hill In­dus­trial Es­tate on Tues­day.

A 45-year-old man was ar­rested in con­nec­tion with drug of­fences and was due to ap­pear at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court.

In­spec­tor Brian Lindie, of Cam­bus­lang Po­lice Sta­tion, said: “This has been a sub­stan­tial re­cov­ery by of­fi­cers who con­ducted an in­tel­li­gence-led search of the unit.

“In­for­ma­tion from the com­mu­nity is ab­so­lutely vi­tal in help­ing us tar­get those al­legedly in­volved in the sup­ply of con­trolled drugs.

“I would con­tinue to ask any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing drug sup­ply to con­tact po­lice via 101 or al­ter­na­tively Crimestop­pers.”
