FIVE people have fronted court over their alleged roles in a large-scale drug supply operation in southwest NSW.
The appearances come after police officers executed a traffic stop and five search warrants across Narrandera on Wednesday, arresting five men and one woman.
Officers seized ice, MDMA, cannabis, a firearm, prohibited weapons and cash.
On Thursday, Narrandera residents Robert Andrew Hart, 51, Jack Simpson, 20, Jamie Thompson, 41, and Kristy Williams, 34, appeared via video link in Wagga Local Court.
Griffith man Kevin Simpson, 27, appeared in Griffith Local Court.
Jack Simpson is charged with 10 counts of supply prohibited drug between June and July. He is also charged with one count of owner/occupier knowingly allow use as drug premises: expose child to drugs.
Mr Thompson is charged with three counts of supply prohibited drug and take part in supply prohibited drug.
Ms Williams is charged with two counts of supply prohibited drug, take part in supply of prohibited drug, and owner/occupier knowingly allowing use as drug premises: expose child to drugs.
Mr Hart is charged with five counts of supply prohibited drug and one count of possess prohibited drug.
Kevin Simpson is charged with two counts of supply prohibited drug (indictable quantity) and one count of owner/occupier knowingly allowing use as drug premises.
All five have yet to enter pleas. Another 51-year-old Narrandera man is charged with supplying and possessing prohibited drug and hindering police. He is yet to face court.
Conditional bail was granted to Ms Williams and Mr Hart while it was refused for the other three co-accused who have faced court.
In Wagga court, acting prosecutor Sergeant Steven Magnone opposed bail for all four accused, saying they were part of a large criminal enterprise.
Sergeant Magnone also said the charges were serious with the potential for custodial sentences.
"There is the continuation of offending given the substantial amount of drugs supplied - it doesn't just stop, generally," he said.
"Police have a strong case with all these transactions being electronically recorded."
Defence solicitor Sascha McCorriston, who presented the accused in Wagga, said that a number of the accused had limited criminal records and that this is the first time in custody for them.
Ms McCorriston also raised mental health issues for Mr Thompson and an acquired brain injury for Mr Hart. "There are concerns about self-harm [regarding Mr Thompson] ... and institutionalisation," she said.
