HMP Low Moss is a low-security prison on the outskirts of Bishopbridge Dunbartonshire; near Glasgow. Opened in 1968, the prison has a capacity to hold 784 inmates.
The original establishment was closed in 2007, and redeveloped. Construction began in 2010, ready to be finished and reopened in early 2012. The capacity would be twice the old figure, and the prison was expanded by three times in size.
Thief Paul Matthews Cowan, described as a prisoner at HMP Low Moss was found to have stole two cars, including a £40,000 BMW and a Ford Fiesta valued at £6,000. He was also found to have stolen Christmas presents from a van.
