A 22-year-old man has been arrested and charged after cannabis worth an estimated £120,000 was recovered from a property in Paisley.

Officers attended the premmises on St Mirren Street in the town on Friday and discovered a cannabis cultivation within the building.

The 22-year-old is expected to appear at Paisley Sheriff Court on Tuesday, 13th February, 2024

Detective Sergeant Craig Savage said: “Anyone who introduces drugs into our communities for their own gain should be in absolutely no doubt that we will rigorously pursue every means possible to disrupt this activity.

“Seizures such as this show our commitment nationally to the Serious Organised Crime Taskforce and the country’s Serious and Organised Crime Strategy.

“Locally in Renfrewshire and Inverclyde our officers are determined to protect members of the public from this type of criminality.”

DS Savage added: “Information and support from members of the public is vital to our work and I would encourage anyone with concerns about drugs activity in their area to contact Police Scotland on 101. Alternatively you can speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
