Police later searched three properties in the Auchinleck Terrace and Concho Road areas of Clydebank, and Bearsden Road, Glasgow.

The 36-year-old is expected to appear at Airdrie Sheriff Court on Monday.

Detective Superintendent Craig Willison said: "I'd like to commend the good work of the officers involved in these significant seizures.

"I hope it goes some way to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to tackling the illegal supply of drugs in our communities and our efforts to bring those involved to justice.

"It might be tempting for some offenders to believe that their criminal activities can go unnoticed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, however they are never beyond the reach of the law."
