An alleged underworld crime syndicate has been busted and millions of dollars worth of ice, GHB, guns, jewelry and cash have been uncovered in three states.

Two men, including one with a suitcase containing more than 16kg of ice, were arrested in Sydney on Wednesday, plus two more in Perth.

A further 50kg of methamphetamine hidden in industrial plastic rolls was found on a nearby property, as well as 100 liters of GBL – a commonly used date-rape drug that converts to GHB in the body.
