About £1.4 million worth of cannabis plants have been discovered by police in what has been described as “one of the biggest” drug hauls of its kind in the west of Scotland.
Glasgow officers found the cultivation operation in a building on Cheapside Street on Monday, February 4 following a tip-off from a member of the public.
More than 2,300 cannabis plants were discovered at the property after a warrant was executed.
Police Scotland said their investigation into “how the cultivation site came to be there” is on-going.
Detective Inspector Davy Hill, of the Greater Glasgow pro-active unit, said: “We reacted to a call regarding this property and as a result discovered a large scale cannabis cultivation site, one of the biggest in the west of Scotland.
“A substantial amount of cannabis plants will now be taken out of our community and will significantly impact those involved in drug dealing.
“Criminal activity such as this will not be taken lightly and we will continue to carry out enquiries to find those responsible for this site, and anybody else linked to the growing and distribution of drugs.
“We encourage anyone with any information to come forward and contact us. You can be reassured that we will act on any information we receive.”
