Eight people have been arrested over drug, weapon and bikie-related offences in Sydney, with police seizing a host of items including heroin, ice, a baton and a slingshot.

A 40-year-old man was arrested at a Burwood hotel on Wednesday for an alleged breach of bail conditions, with police later searching his Homebush home and allegedly uncovering cash, illicit drugs and Comancheros-branded clothing.

He was refused bail to appear at Downing Centre Local Court on Thursday.

A South Wentworthville home was also raided by police on Wednesday, with six men aged between 23 and 45 and a 45-year-old woman arrested.

Police say their raid of the home uncovered prohibited knives, drugs including ice, heroin, MDMA and steroids and prescription drugs among other offences. A car in the home's driveway allegedly also contained a baton and slingshot.

The 45-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man were hit with multiple firearm and drug offences and refused bail to appear at Parramatta Local Court on Thursday.

Of the other five men, three were charged with weapons offences, with one to appear at Fairfield Local Court on Thursday and the other two to appear on November 23.

The other two men have not yet been charged.
