A lamb - and £10,000 worth of class A drugs - were discovered by police officers in the back of a car in Glasgow over the weekend.
Police Scotland said the car was stopped on the northbound carriageway near J3, at 6.10pm on Saturday (22 April).
Officers discovered heroin with a value of approximately £7,000, as well as cocaine with a value of £3,000.
A lamb was also found in the back of the vehicle, which has since been reunited with a local farmer.
Officers said enquiries were continuing to establish how the animal ended up in the car.
The three occupants of the vehicle - two men, aged 52 and 53 and one woman, aged 38 - were arrested and charged with drugs offences.
Police Scotland made light of the bizarre situation on social media by tweeting: "Oh ewe!
Oh ewe! Officers from #GlasgowRP stopped this vehicle (not a Lamborghini!) on the #M74 J3 NB yesterday. In addition to this wee fella roughly £10k in Class A drugs were recovered with assistance from @PSOSDogs. Driver further arrested for failing the roadside swap for cocaine. pic.twitter.com/K2HItyaVN9— Road Policing Scotland (@PSOSRoads) April 23, 2023
