An unassembled kit home was among several items seized by police during searches of two homes in the Shoalhaven on Thursday.

The searches were conducted as part of Strike Force Izzard, which was established by the Shoalhaven Local Area Command and State Crime Command’s Drug Squad in July last year, to investigate the supply of "ice” in the Shoalhaven.

The searches were carried out at 10am on Thursday at Oxford Street in South Nowra, and Nerriga Road, Tomboye, in the Southern Tablelands.

Police at the Tomboye location uncovered the building components for a kit home, which they allege was stolen from an address in Nowra in June 2012.

Other items discovered included two luxury caravans and a .22-calibre rifle, also allegedly stolen, along with cannabis plants.

Investigators at the South Nowra site found an expensive motor vehicle, suspected of being the proceeds of crime.

A 49-year-old man was arrested at Oxford Street, South Nowra, and taken to Nowra Police Station.

He was charged with supplying drugs on an ongoing basis and three counts of drug supply.

He faced Nowra Local Court on Friday where he was granted bail.

He will reappear in court on August 5.

Investigations are continuing.
