Officers from Lanarkshire’s Community Investigation Unit have seized a quantity of cannabis plants, worth an estimated street value of £100,000.
Around 11.25am on Monday 11 January 2016, officers, acting under warrant, entered a property in Finlayson Lane, Carnwath and discovered a cannabis cultivation site within the property. More than 100 plants were seized in the operation.
A 49-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman have been arrested and are presently detained in police custody in connection with the seizure.
Inspector Scott Jones said:
“This significant seizure highlights our commitment to cracking down on cannabis cultivation sites and arresting those involved in this type of activity.
Yesterday’s operation was intelligence-led with members of the public providing police with valuable information, resulting in officers taking action. This action demonstrates our determination and commitment in tackling the serious issue of drugs.”
A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
