Man arrested after police raid Giffnock house

A 57-year-old man has been arrested after police seized drugs from both an industrial unit in Glasgow and a house in Giffnock.

British Transport Police seized what are believed to be cannabis plants — with a street value of around £15,000 — from a unit in Cook Street on the southside of the city.

A house in Giffnock was subsequently searched and drugs — also believed to be cannabis, with a street value of around £40,000 — were recovered, as well as “cash and other items”.

A BTP spokesman said: “The man is now the subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal and it is anticipated he will appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court tomorrow (Wednesday).
