Detectives are on the hunt for those behind a cannabis farm after it was seized by police.

Officers recovered plants worth a street value of £136,200 from a commercial unit in Falkirk’s Meadow Street last Friday.

Police said the unit “appeared to have been broken into”.

Enquiries are ongoing to trace those responsible.

Detective inspector Norrie Petrie said: “This is a significant seizure, one which will no doubt have a substantial impact on the sale and supply of cannabis in the area.

“Drugs destroy people’s lives and cause misery in our communities.

“We will stop at nothing to ensure they don’t make it onto our streets and we will continue to disrupt the distribution of drugs with the continued help and cooperation of the public.”

If you have any concerns about drugs in your community, report it via 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
