Significant cannabis cultivation recovered in Falkirk

Published 13 September 2019

Police in Forth Valley have arrested three people in connection with drug offences after a significant recovery of Class B drugs in Falkirk.

Officers from Forth Valley’s Proactive Criminal Investigations Department carried out an intelligence-led search of an address in Windsor Road on Wednesday 11th September.

Officers found a large quantity of cannabis plants with an estimated street value of £195,000.

A 45-year-old woman and two men, aged 34 and 20, were arrested and have now been charged.

They all appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court yesterday (Thursday 12th September).

Detective Sergeant Stuart Brodie from Forth Valley CID said: “We found around 650 plants which stopped this harmful substance from reaching our communities.

“Those involved in the production of such drugs often put themselves, and others at risk due to the methods used in the cultivation process.

“We remain committed to tackling the production and sale of drugs across Forth Valley and I would like to thank the public for their continued assistance in providing us with information that helps us carry out enforcement activity.”
