A CANNABIS haul worth around £17,000 was seized by police alongside thousands in cash in a drugs raid. 

A 47-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with the discoveries made by Hamilton cops on Wednesday. 

They searched two flats and a car in the Lanarkshire town this week.

The man has been released on an undertaking and will appear in the dock at Airdrie Sheriff Court at an unspecified date. 

Detective Inspector Laura Sands, of Lanarkshire CID said: “This recovery highlights our continued commitment in Lanarkshire to disrupting drug activity and supply within our communities.

“If you have information or concerns about drugs within the local community, do not hesitate to contact us on 101. Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
