Nine people, including a 14-year-old boy, have been charged in relation to the supply of drugs between Sydney and Dubbo in central-western New South Wales.
The suspects were arrested during simultaneous police operations yesterday involving officers from the Gang Squad and Orana Local Area Command.
Six people were arrested in Sydney, including a 41-year-old man who is believed to be linked to the Bandidos Motorcycle Gang.
A 14-year-old boy was also charged with supplying drugs and participating in a criminal group.
Police arrested him and another man at the domestic terminal of Sydney Airport.
The boy was given conditional bail to appear at Bidura Children's Court next month.
The other men, aged 23 to 53, were charged with various drug and gang offences and refused bail.
A 30-year-old woman, who was arrested at a shopping complex, was charged with drug supply and given bail to appear in court on July 1.
Homes at Kurnell, Old Toongabbie, Bangor and a unit at Sans Souci were searched by officers who allegedly found cash, weapons and drugs.
In Dubbo and Wellington, police charged two women and a man, aged between 25 and 28. They are due to appear in court today.
