She was charged with five offences including participating in a criminal group, take part supply prohibited drug and found on/entering/leaving drug premises.

Police will allege in court Hogan knew the six other people arrested by Strike Force Northrop this week, when they found 1.6kg of cocaine and $40,000 cash in raids in Bankstown, Croydon Park, Yagoona, Potts Hill and Condell Park.

Among those arrested were four men - two aged 28 and two aged 29 - and two women - aged 24 and 27 - who remain before the courts.

Police said they believed the cocaine had been destined for racegoers and revellers over the Melbourne Cup weekend.

Strike Force Northrop detectives said they happened upon intelligence leading them to the latest syndicate during the arrest of 55 people running similar dial-a-dealer cocaine delivery services in May.

Detectives allege a sophisticated criminal network was involved in facilitating and directing the supply of drugs throughout the CBD and the eastern suburbs.
