Four men will face court over their part in an alleged Hunter drug supply ring.
Detectives from Strike Force Codas executed a search warrant at a home in Broadmeadow late last month following a six-month investigation across Newcastle, Port Stephens and Lake Macquarie.
Officers allegedly uncovered a shortened double-barrel shotgun and two pistols, as well as more than 1000 ecstasy pills, 500g of ice, more than 40 cannabis plants and leaf and a pill press.
A 44-year-old man was arrested at the home, charged and refused bail ahead of court on April 18.
Further investigations led to the arrest of another two men - aged 23 and 25 - at Raymond Terrace today.
Shortly after MDMA, pills, cannabis, cash and other items linked to the proceeds of crime were allegedly recovered by police during the search of a home in Raymond Terrace.
The pair have been refused bail ahead of court tomorrow.
While a 31-year-old man was charged on Monday with drug, firearm and offences relating to the proceeds of crime.
He's off to court on April 19.
Detective Inspector Peter Mahon, says these arrests should act as a warning to others.
“Newcastle City Local Area Command has zero tolerance concerning the supply of illicit drugs in the area,” he said.
