Two men have been arrested after police seized more than $9 million worth of cocaine and ice during a vehicle stop in Sydney’s southwest.

The pair, aged 24 and 23, were taken into custody after they were intercepted on the M5 Motorway at Milperra on Friday afternoon.

During the arrest, the older man allegedly ran across multiple traffic lanes to escape but was found shortly after hiding in bushes.

When searched, police say, 280 grams of cocaine was found in his pants while 17kg of the drug and 8kg of ice were recovered from the vehicle.

The combined estimated street value of the haul is almost $9.3 million.

Strike force offices also executed a search warrant at a unit at Kogarah, where they allegedly seized 170 grams of a white substance believed to be cocaine.

The 24-year-old has been charged with six counts of supplying a commercial quantity of a prohibited drug or greater, knowingly dealing with the proceeds of crime and escaping police custody.

It will be further alleged he was involved in a major drugs supply operation earlier this year.

The 23-year-old has been charged with two counts of supplying a large commercial quantity of prohibited drugs.

The pair were both refused bail to appear in Parramatta Local Court on Saturday.

The bust follows the discovery of more than 50 kilograms of methylamphetamine, MDMA, heroin and other drugs when police pulled over an unregistered utility near Hay in southwestern NSW on June 1.

A 65-year-old man is before the courts in relation to that matter.

Both seizures are a result of a major joint state and federal investigation into the supply of narcotics across the state involving both the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission and NSW Crime Commission.

The group also conducted a raid on a home unit at Newcastle on June 4 in which $450,000 cash, electronic equipment and drugs were recovered.
