Police are hunting drug pushers after a massive haul of pills was seized in Newarthill.
It’s understood that diazepam tablets worth hundreds of thousands of pounds were recovered after a raid in the village last week.
No arrests had been made as the Times went to press and police were unwilling ‘for operational reasons’ to confirm many details.
They wouldn’t even say where in the village the diazepam - commonly known as valium - pills were seized.
A Police Scotland spokesman would say only: “Around 9.30am on Wednesday, October 2, a significant quantity of Class C controlled drugs was seized by officers following a police operation in the Newarthill area.
“Inquiries into the find are continuing and no further details can be confirmed at this time.”
