A 23-year-old man was arrested in Abronhill on Friday charged with alleged possession with intent to supply a class A drug.

This follows plain clothes police officers executing a drugs search warrant at an address in Ash Road.

As a result of the address being searched over £1000 of class A drugs were seized.

Cumbernauld and Kilsyth Area Inspector Neil MacLeod said: “This is another recent example of intelligence led policing resulting in significant amounts of drugs being taken out of circulation within our local community.

“It is important that the community know we are taking their concerns seriously and as always I encourage anyone with information on drug supply to pass this information to police.

“This can be done by reporting at your local office, calling 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800555111, where the facility exists for information to be given anonymously.”
