A 19-year-old man has been arrested after a large cannabis farm worth almost half a million pounds was recovered from a house in Selkirk.

Police entered the property last night to find the cultivation that has an approximate value of £489,000.

The man will appear at Selkirk Sheriff Court today.

Chief Inspector Stuart Reid, Area Commander for the Borders, said:

Tackling the sale and supply of controlled drugs is a top priority for Police Scotland and the disruption of all drug related activity is of the utmost importance to us."

“We continue to work to hold those who supply drugs in our community to account and bring them to justice.”
