A MAN is due to appear in court after more than £280,000 worth of drugs was seized by police. 

At around 9.15pm on Friday, April 26, acting on intelligence cops stopped a vehicle on the M73 near Baillieston.

A further quantity of cannabis was found. The drugs were estimated to have a total street value of around £286,000. 

A 30-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the discovery.
