As part of their investigation, a 26-year-old man was pulled over by police on Pennant Hills Road, West Pennant Hills on February 3.
A search of the vehicle allegedly found magic mushrooms (psilocybin), cocaine, $50,000 in cash and two knives.
The man was arrested and remanded in custody.
Footage released by NSW Police shows officers in full protective suits enter the seemingly innocuous backyard shed to discover dozens of plastic crates as part of the alleged operation.
It took Strike Force officers and the Chemical Operations Unit three days to comb through the back yard find, police said.
Police arrested a 26-year-old man they believe to be connected with the drug best at a Silverwater facility on Monday.
He was charged with a string of offences including drug supply and manufacturing a large commercial quantity of a prohibited drug.
Police said he would face Paramatta Local Court on Tuesday.
Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
