A WARRANT has been issued for a man charged with producing cannabis at a house in Kilmacolm.

Ervin Salihi, 20, is accused of producing the controlled drug at an address on Oldhall Drive on August 8 last year.

Prosecutors say he also intentionally prevented an metre from measuring the amount of electricity supplied to the property, bypassing the appropriate charges for usage.

Salihi, of Glasgow, was due to attend an indictment hearing at Greenock Sheriff Court but failed to appear.

Sheriff James Varney granted a warrant for his arrest.
