Officers from Glasgow’s Pro-active Unit last night recovered around £625,000 worth of drugs following search of a flat in Govanhill.

Around 7.15 pm yesterday evening (Thursday, October 18) officers carried out a search of a property on Preston Street where a large amount of herbal cannabis, with a street value of £625,000, was discovered.

Six men, aged 22, 23, 24, 25, 36 and 50, have been arrested and charged with various drugs offences.

They are due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court today (Friday, October 19).

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

Detective Inspector Steven Elliott, Glasgow Pro-Active Unit, said: “This operation has resulted in the arrest of six people and a large amount of cannabis taken off the streets.“Targeting those involved in drugs remains a priority for Police Scotland, they have absolutely no place in our communities.

“We recognise the damage that drugs cause across the country and we have teams of specialist officers working every day to tackle the problem.

“These people have no thought for the harm their drug pedalling causes, all they care about is making money from their criminal activities. People can be assured, we will do everything in our power to continue to arrest those involved and take drugs off the street.”
