Two men convicted after £625,000 cannabis recovery
Stephen Rouse and Adam Southall have pled guilty to being involved in supplying drugs.
Two men have been convicted of drug offences after police recovered a cannabis haul worth £625,000.
Adam Southall, 22, and 53-year-old Stephen Rouse pled guilty to being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs following a combined recovery of approximately 135 kilos of cannabis resin.
The recovery comes after a joint operation between Police Scotland and the National Crime Agency carried out in the Motherwell area, between December 2015 and January 2017.
Detective Inspector Graeme Naysmith of the Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism Unit, Police Scotland said: "Targeting those involved in drugs remains a priority for Police Scotland.
"These people have no thought for the harm their drug pedalling causes, all they care about is making money from their criminal activities.
"People can be assured, we will do everything in our power to rid our communities of drugs."
Both will appear for sentencing at a later date.
