Police uncover £9,000 Camelon cannabis farm

A man has been reported after police discovered a cannabis cultivation with a potential value of £9,000 at a property in Camelon.

About 34 plants were recovered after officers forced entry to a property in the village on Friday night.

Police later traced a 38-year-old man who will be reported to the procurator fiscal.

Officers said extra patrols also took place over the weekend in Larbert's Carse, Kinnaird and Tryst ward.

Insp Billy Drummond said: "These plants had a potential value of £9000, so this is a good piece of proactive work by our team.

"We'd like to reassure people that we won't allow drugs to fester in our community.

"Both of these actions have been part of Operation Core, and it shows we're focusing on these issues.
