Police Scotland said the charges followed raids on five properties in Clydebank, Glasgow, Port Glasgow, Wishaw, and Livingston on Friday.

Detective Inspector Bernadette Walls said: “Crime affects the whole community and can cause fear and alarm, we aim to address these issues.

“It’s important local residents, workers and visitors to the area feel secure and reassured that they can go about their day-to-day lives free from the fear of violence and antisocial behaviour.”

Police Scotland said its investigation is still ongoing.
