TWO marines have appeared in court on drug charges after cops swooped on a nuclear base.
Police searched the Clyde naval sub HQ after an op in Baillieston, Glasgow.
A source said last night: “A few cops in unmarked cars turned up. They had warrants and were searching a couple of houses on the base.
“Everyone’s talking about it. It’s not what you would expect when you consider this is where nuclear weapons are.”
The undercover officers found nothing at Faslane last Friday.
A police operation two days earlier in Glasgow’s east end led to the arrests and seizure of a five-figure sum of cash.
Commandos Grant Broadfoot, 27, and Stuart Bryant, 29, were charged with drugs offences along with Ian Broadfoot, 60.
They appeared at the city’s sheriff court last Friday and made no plea to charges of supplying illegal substances.
Grant Broadfoot and Ian Broadfoot, from Glasgow, also made no plea to a charge of producing drugs. Grant Broadfoot was remanded and the other two bailed.
Police said: “We charged three men in connection with drug offences on June 3.
“A five-figure cash sum was also recovered from a search of two Glasgow addresses.”
Faslane is home to the UK’s Trident subs and 43 Commando Fleet Protection Group Royal Marines.
The Royal Navy said: “We’re aware of an ongoing police investigation.”
