Two men have been arrested and a cannabis grow worth approximately £75,000 seized as part of an investigation led by the joint National Crime Agency and Police Scotland Organised Crime Partnership.
A 24-year-old man was arrested after officers raided an address in Barrhead yesterday (5 May). Inside the residential property search teams found around 120 plants across two floors.
A second man, aged 28, was arrested today (6 May) in the Mount Florida area of Glasgow in connection with the investigation.
Both remain in custody.
OCP Scotland have now taken out three cannabis factories and made six arrests in the last two weeks.
NCA Scotland Operations Manager Rob Miles said:
“This latest activity demonstrates our commitment to protecting communities and disrupting organised crime across Scotland, alongside our policing colleagues.”
Detective Sergeant Gordon Constable said:
“Crime affects the lives of local people on a daily basis. We are determined to change that and investigations and operations such as these demonstrate our resolve to do just that. Serious and organised crime has no place in our society and we remain committed to disrupting this and any other criminal activity which impacts on people’s lives and our communities.”
