THOUSANDS of pounds worth of drugs were allegedly discovered after a driver was stopped by police.

Officers' attention was first drawn to the motorist as they had been spotted using a mobile phone.

The driver was reportedly found to be disqualified and driving with no insurance.

They allegedly gave false details to police, who came across the alleged haul of class A drugs, which is estimated to be worth around £40k. 

An arrest was made.

Glasgow South East Police took to Twitter to warn drivers. 

They wrote: "Lesson of the day, don’t use your phone while driving. #GlasgowRP will stop you.

"We will see you’re disqualified/driving with no insurance after giving false info and that you have ~£40k of Class A drugs on board.

"You will be arrested. We will deny criminals the use of Scotland's road network."
