Around a dozen officers and several vehicles attended the address in Cockburn Street, just a few hundred yards from Falkirk Police Station, at around 5pm

They were seen to using a battering ram to force entry before carrying out a search of the premises.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “No items were seized and inquiries are ongoing.”

In April last year, a massive cannabis farm was discovered in an empty shop unit in the High Street with officers removing more than 1100 plants.
