Drugs worth more than half a million pounds have been seized by police in a raid in the Maryhill area of Glasgow.

Heroin and amphetamines with a street value of £565,000 were recovered in the "intelligence-led" operation in Wester Common Road on Tuesday afternoon.

Detective Inspector Alasdair Anderson of Greater Glasgow Division called the seizure a "significant recovery".

"This demonstrates our determination to crack down on drugs in our communities," he added.

Intelligence received

Police inquiries are continuing and Det Insp Anderson added: "We are dedicated to ridding our communities of drugs and will always act on intelligence received.

"By effectively gathering information, and with the continuing help and support from the local community, we will keep targeting those involved in serious and organised crime.

"This will certainly have an impact on those involved in the further distribution of these drugs."

A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
