Police in Glasgow have seized drugs with a street value of about £1.8m in a series of raids.

Cocaine, cannabis resin, ecstasy and benzocaine were found in the properties in Gartloch Road, Balveny Street and Craiglockhart Crescent.

Strathclyde Police said major crime unit officers had also seized a five-figure sum of cash in the raids on Friday.

Two men, aged 46 and 48, and a 48-year-old woman were arrested.

Det Supt Andy Gunn said: "This is a significant seizure and illustrates our commitment to cracking down on drugs.

"It is proof that through effective intelligence-gathering we can successfully detect and arrest those involved and disrupt their activities."
