Detective Sergeant Stuart Brodie from Forth Valley CID said: “We found around 650 plants which stopped this harmful substance from reaching our communities. Those involved in the production of such drugs often put themselves, and others at risk due to the methods used in the cultivation process.

“We remain committed to tackling the production and sale of drugs across Forth Valley and I would like to thank the public for their continued assistance in providing us with information that helps us carry out enforcement activity.”
