A drugs trafficker who was jailed after police broke up a massive cannabis cultivation housed in industrial units was ordered to hand over more than pounds 100,000 in crime proceeds.

Christopher Robb, 36, was sentenced to six years and nine months imprisonment last year after officers raided the factory in 2020 and found a total of 873 plants.

The value of the cannabis seized was more than pounds 450,000 and "dirty money" was also recovered by police in the operation that snared Robb and his co-accused, Keith Gartshore, 43, and Ross Blackshaw, 38. Robb, of Cambuslang, was also found to have concealed criminal property - pounds 41,000 in cash - at an address in the South Lanarkshire town.

Robb, Gartshore, of Riddrie and Blackshaw, of Nitshill, admitted drug supply charges. Gartshore was jailed for nine years and three months and Blackshaw for eight and a half years.

Following their convictions the Crown raised proceedings to confiscate crime profits from Robb.

During a brief hearing at the High Court in Edinburgh on Monday a judge was told that a settlement had been reached in the action.

Defence counsel Dale Hughes, for Robb, told the court it was agreed that his benefit from criminal conduct was pounds 340,641.

Mr Hughes said the available amount for a confiscation order was pounds 114,072.

He added that the confiscation sum was subject to variation depending on the sale of "high value goods".

Robb earlier admitted being concerned in the supply of cannabis between May 2019 and February 2020 at industrial units at Swanston Street, in Glasgow's Dalmarnock area.

The sentencing judge, Lord Scott, told him and his co-accused that it was "a sophisticated operation".

Prosecutor Alan Cameron said the trio were part of a "large scale cannabis cultivation" with lighting and fans rigged up to aid in production of the Class B drug at the cannabis farming site.
