THREE men who were reportedly sitting smoking cannabis when police put a flat door in where arrested and taken to Clydebank police office.

Eight officers from the community police department at Clydebank attended the property on Onslow Road, Drumry, in possession of a search warrant for drugs.

And a reporter from the Post was invited along on the day to see how the local police carry out their job.

When arriving in two separate vans on September 13 at around 5pm, six of the officers went into the “Columba” close through the main door meanwhile two officers went around the back to prevent anyone escaping or anything being thrown out the window.

Upon entering the main close, it was clear there were drugs around as there was a strong smell of cannabis.

After entry was forced to a flat on the ground floor, three men were found inside and allegedly smoking the Class B drug.

All three were put in handcuffs and searched.

An extensive search of the flat, which took more than an hour, was carried out - resulting in a “substantial” amount of drugs allegedly being found stashed all over the house.

Associated items such as scales were also found. As well as a four-figure cash sum.

During the search, neighbours came out to see what was going on after hearing the loud bang from the door being put in.
