Three men have been arrested after cannabis with a street value of almost £200,000 was recovered in police searches.
Officers in Dumfries and Galloway searched a car heading north on the A74(M) near Lockerbie on Thursday and recovered drugs worth £120,000.
In a separate search, they found drugs with a value of around £77,000 at a house in Eskdalemuir.
The second discovery took the total value of the drugs found by the division that day to £197,000.
A 38-year-old man from Eskdalemuir and a 57-year-old man from Edinburgh have been arrested in connection with the second find, while a 28-year-old man from Birmingham was arrested over the six-figure haul.
They were expected to appear at Dumfries Sheriff Court.
