The arrests come just two days after three men were arrested in an unrelated incident in which police rioted on a suspected $ 14.7 million real estate fraud ring and took away not only financial documents, but also guns and poker machines.

The alleged fraud involved a real estate agent and two others who conspired to publish false documents in order to obtain home loans.

Five shops and homes in Illawarra were searched on Wednesday. Two 33-year-old men were arrested in Wongawilli and Calderwood.

The police confiscated financial documents, poker machines, firearms and electronic devices, which the police said should be forensically examined.

They were accused of posting 19 false and misleading information in order to gain an advantage, dishonestly obtain a financial advance through deception, and to join a criminal organization to contribute to criminal activity.

A third man, 35, was arrested at the Illawarra Lake Police Station and charged with nine frauds.

Police will claim the 33-year-old men used fake documentation to obtain a $ 14.7 million loan to build homes in Avondale.

They will also claim that the 35-year-old man used his position as a real estate agent to publish false sales contracts.

Investigations are ongoing and further charges are expected to be brought.

All three men have been given bail and are due to appear before Port Kembla District Court on April 14.
