Two men have been arrested and charged following investigations into several alleged armed robberies over five months in south-west Sydney.

Following investigations, police arrested two men in Yennora today (Wednesday, September 21).

Both men were taken to Fairfield Police Station.

A 31-year-old man was charged with 11 counts of robbery whilst armed with an offensive weapon.

A 27-year-old man was charged with robbery whilst armed with an offensive weapon – accessory after the fact.

Both men were refused bail to appear before Fairfield Local Court today (Thursday, September 22).

A subsequent search warrant was also executed at a home in Edensor Park where mobile phones, a vehicle and other items of interest were seized for forensic analysis.

Investigations by Strike Force Agria are continuing.
