Detective Inspector Davy Hill, of Greater Glasgow Proactive Unit, said: “We reacted to a call regarding this property and as a result discovered a large-scale cannabis cultivation site, one of the biggest in the west of Scotland.
“A substantial amount of cannabis plants will now be taken out of our community and will significantly impact those involved in drug dealing.
“Criminal activity such as this will not be taken lightly and we will continue to carry out inquiries to find those responsible for this site, and anybody else linked to the growing and distribution of drugs.
“We encourage anyone with any information to come forward and contact us. You can be reassured that we will act on any information we receive.”
