Nine men arrested over drug raids in Glasgow's Maryhill area

Nine men have been arrested after heroin and cocaine with an estimated street value of £1,700 was seized from properties in Glasgow's Maryhill area.

Strathclyde Police said the men, aged 17, 18, 32, 35, 35, 38, 38, 39 and 61, were held at eight properties on the Wyndford Estate on Friday morning.

They are expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court next week.

The raids were part of Operation Myriad, a five-month campaign to tackle "issues that blight communities".

Det Insp Alan Hunter, of Strathclyde Police, said: "Today's operation demonstrates our commitment to cracking down on drugs.

"Its success is down to local people who've provided us with information after growing concern about drug dealing on their doorstep.

"Ridding our communities of drugs is a high priority for us and today's operation sends a clear message to those who're peddling their misery through fear and intimidation."
