Two police officers have recovered £110,000 worth of Class A drugs after stopping a man on a Glasgow street.

The officers stopped and searched the man in the Pollokshaws area of the city and found Class A drugs with an estimated street value of £1,500.

They then searched a home, also in the area, where they discovered another 2.5 kilos of Class A drugs.

The 26-year-old man was arrested for alleged drug offences and detained in custody.

Det Sgt Alan McAlpine said: "This substantial drugs recovery by plain-clothed officers on local foot patrol shows that the vigilance and hard work of all our officers pays dividends.

"An amount of drugs this big, taken off the streets, will undoubtedly have a major impact on the supply of these deadly drugs available in the area.

"As always, we would ask the public to help us with any information they may have to contact their local police office."

A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal. The man is expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Monday.
