The arrests of four men and two women and the seizure of drugs, cash and firearms in a series of raids has made a big dent in the NSW south coast drug market, police say.
A convoy of riot squad and undercover officers swarmed eight homes around Nowra and Bomaderry on Thursday morning following a four-month investigation into drug supply in the Shoalhaven region by strike force officers.
Methylamphetamine, cash and two firearms were seized, with four men and two women to face a series of drug-making and supply charges in Nowra Local Court on Friday.
Police say many more arrests are expected.
"The people we have targeted are suppliers, not people in possession of drugs," Superintendent Steve Hegarty told Seven Network on Friday.
"That will put a big dent in the supply of prohibited drugs in the area.
"We have 33 (further) targets to work our way through over the next week.
"I can tell you there's been firearms (and a) large amount of drugs found during those search warrants."
