Police have charged four men and seized $1.5 million in cash and more than five kilograms of cocaine and meth in Sydney’s inner west.

The bust is the product of a NSW police money laundering investigation that saw raids and arrests across the city.

Police pulled over a sedan on Sunday afternoon and found 2.3 kilograms of cocaine and $24,000 in cash.

A search of a nearby hatchback uncovered 550g of cocaine and 140g of MDMA.

The two men in the sedan, one aged 23 and another 28, were arrested and taken to Burwood Police Station.

Later search warrants were executed at two properties on Hunter Street in Strathfield where they arrested two men, an 18 year old and another aged 35.

Between the two raided homes, police found $1.5 million in cash, two kilograms of methylamphetamine and two litres of methylamphetamine oil.

Two hydraulic press machines, two ballistic vests and multiple driver’s licences were also found.

All four men were charged with large commercial drug supply.

The men arrested at the Strathfield properties were also charged with participating in a criminal group and knowingly dealing with crime proceeds.

They were refused bail to appear at Burwood Local Court on Monday.

Investigations continue.
