A 26-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and is expected to appear at Hamilton Sheriff Court on Monday.

Officers also searched an industrial unit in Balmoral Street, Partick, Glasgow, at around 8.45pm.

They discovered a ­cannabis cultivation of 1100 plants with an estimated street value of £660,000.

Officers are now carrying out investigations to trace those involved.

Police Scotland warned that premises used for cannabis cultivations pose a lethal fire risk and urged landlords report anything suspicious.

Signs include visits to the premises at unusual times, a pungent smell, noise from equipment and windows being permanently covered from the inside.

Detective Chief Inspector Kevin Jamieson, of the Organised Crime and ­Counter Terrorism Unit (West), said: "We will take swift action on any information passed to us.

"I would urge anyone with information or concerns about drugs in their local area to contact 101, the non-emergency number for Police Scotland."
