A quantity of drugs, believed to be cocaine, with a street value of £252,000 has been seized in South Lanarkshire while three people have been charged in connection.

At around 3.30pm on Wednesday, police officers acting on a warrant recovered a quantity of the drugs from a house in Aldersyde Place in Blantyre.

Two men aged 31 and 39 and a 32-year-old woman have been arrested and charged in connection with the recovery and are due to appear at Hamilton Sheriff Court on Thursday.

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

Detective inspector Colin Green said: “Drugs have no place in our communities and we work every day to target those involved in drug supply, to gather intelligence and target offenders.

“We rely on the support of the public. Your information helps us build intelligence on drug-related issues so that we can act on your concerns. 

“I urge anyone who has any information about the supply of drugs in their community to report it to police through 101. Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
