Four held after police seize £250,000 of cannabis from cottage

Police have made four arrests after uncovering almost £250,000 worth of cannabis in a cottage.

Officers targeted the property in the village of Cleland, North Lanarkshire, yesterday, where they recovered cannabis with an estimated street value of £244,000.

Two men aged 62 and 57 and two women aged 59 and 36 were arrested and were expected to appear at Hamilton Sheriff Court.

The operation follows the seizure of cannabis plants worth £1.2 million in Cumbernauld last week.

Officers searched a business property in the town's Mid Road and recovered more than 2,000 plants on February 4.
