    Police believe they have broken up a major drug-trafficking network in Sydney's south-west.

    Detectives from the Asian Crime Squad raided five homes yesterday in Wakeley, Edensor Park, Liverpool, Canley Heights and Abbotsbury.

    Officers say they have seized 47,000 ecstasy pills with a street value of $1.4 million, a quantity of ice worth $30,000, almost $70,000 in cash and two guns.

    Four men between 25- and 31-years-old were arrested and charged with drug offences including supply and possession of drugs and firearm offences.

    Police believe the men have been trafficking drugs around Sydney and to criminal groups in Queensland.

    The four men will face Parramatta Bail Court later on Saturday.

    Four men to face court over million dollar ecstasy haul

    Four men will face Parramatta Bail Court this morning after police seized tens of thousands of ecstasy pills, cash and guns during a series of raids.

    Strike Force Keogh comprises detectives from the State Crime Command’s Asian Crime Squad and was established last April to investigate the alleged commercial supply of drugs in south western Sydney.

    Yesterday SF Keogh detectives executed warrants at five homes in Wakeley, Edensor Park, Liverpool, Canley Heights and Abbotsbury.

    They seized approximately 47,000 pills believed to be MDMA with an estimated street value of $1.4 million; 98 grams of ICE worth $30,000, almost $70,000 in cash, a Glock pistol and a replica handgun.

    Those arrested were:

    · A 26-year-old man from Canley Heights has been charged with numerous offences including supplying a large quantity of a prohibited drug and possession of an unauthorised pistol.

    · Another 26-year-old man from Canley Heights has also been charged with supplying a large quantity of a prohibited drug and firearms offences.

    · A 25-year-old man from Edensor Park man has been charged drug offences including supply a large quantity of a prohibited drug.

    · A 31-year-old man from Wakeley has been charged with supplying a large quantity of a prohibited drug and knowingly dealing with the proceeds of crime.

    Police will allege investigations will show members of the drug syndicate were trafficking drugs within Sydney area as well as to criminal groups located Queensland.

    Commander of the Asian Crime Squad, Detective Acting Superintendent Scott Cook said the arrests will significantly impact the supply of drugs in the south west of Sydney.

    This investigation has seen the removal of a significant drug trafficking syndicate from the streets of south west Sydney, he said.

    We will continue to work with the community and our law enforcement partners to ensure that those who traffic drugs are arrested and put before the courts.
