About 7am today, investigators from Strike Force Askos executed two search warrants at homes in Chester Hill and Sefton.

Police located cash, clothing, scales, MDMA and steroids during the search warrants. All items have been secured for further forensic analysis.

Two men, both aged 19, were also arrested during the warrants. Both men were taken to Bankstown Police Station and charged.

One man was charged with supply commercial quantity prohibited drug, supply prohibited drug ongoing basis, knowingly take part in supply indictable quantity prohibited drug x 2, knowingly participate in criminal group and deal with proceeds of crime.

Another man was charged with supply indictable prohibited drug (x4) and knowingly participate in criminal group.

Both men were refused bail to appear at Bankstown Local Court tomorrow.

These charges follow the arrest and charging of an 18-year-old man and a 19-year-old man earlier this month where cocaine and MDMA were allegedly located during a vehicle stop at Moore Park.

These two men will face Waverley Local Court on Tuesday 6 December 2016.
