Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad detectives have charged a female L-plater with driving a car involved in an alleged drive-by shooting in Ermington in January.
About 11am on January 2, a dark-coloured hatchback pulled up outside a house on Spurway Street.
Police allege that four shots were fired from the vehicle into an unattended silver Toyota Seca that was parked on the street.
The Toyota sustained damage to the windscreen, rear door and bumper.
Detectives attached to Strike Force Felix have been investigating this and other shootings in Sydney’s west and south-west dating back to October 2011.
The investigation has since expanded to include drug, firearms and arson offences.
About 1.30pm yesterday Monday April 23, detectives executed a search warrant at a residence in McMillan Street, Yagoona.
During the search, officers seized mobile phones and small amounts of drugs believed to be cannabis, Ecstasy and methylamphetamine, known as ice.
Police arrested a 26-year-old woman at the address and took her to Bankstown Police Station.
It will be alleged the woman, who is an L-plater, was driving the vehicle involved in the Ermington incident.
A 24-year-old man is currently before the courts in relation to the incident. Police allege he was also in the car at the time of the shooting, and that he did not hold a current licence.
The woman was charged with fire firearm in a public place; learner driver unaccompanied by driver, police officer or tester; and drug offences.
She was refused bail to appear in Bankstown Local Court today, Tuesday, April 24.
A number of other people are already before the courts on drug and weapons charges as a result of Strike Force Felix.
The investigation is ongoing, and anyone who can provide assistance to Strike Force Felix detectives can call Crime Stoppers, 1800 333 000.
