Ex-cop is caught in cannabis factory raid after crooks get angry over

AN ex-police officer who dished out advice on stocks and shares was ordered to look after a large cannabis factory when his tips went wrong.

Waquas Manzur, 42, told customers how to invest their cash from behind the counter of his dad’s grocer’s shop.

But when stocks fell and they lost money, he was ordered to stump up £3500.

Manzur – who was cleared of alleged bribing offences in 2007 – agreed to watch cannabis plants as a way of repaying the lost funds. He was in a flat during a police raid that uncovered 107 plants.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court, Manzur, from Pollokshields, pled guilty to being concerned in the supply of cannabis. Police were called to a flat in Langside when residents smelled the drug in a close area.

Officers swooped on the property last December and the dad-of-two was detained and taken to a police station.
