A man was remanded in custody after appearing at court accused of having “significant” amounts of guns and ammunition.
Salvatore Lupi, 38, appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court but did not enter a plea.
He was arrested and charged after a “significant” amount of guns and ammunition were seized at a property in Maryhill, Glasgow, on Friday.
Officers from Police Scotland’s Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism Unit (Occtu) executed a search warrant at a property in Benview Street, Maryhill, around 12.55pm on Friday.
During the search firearms and a quantity of ammunition were recovered.
Lupi was charged with three offences under the firearms act, and one of misuse of drugs.
He did not enter a plea and was remanded in custody.
