One of the highest ranking Nomads in Australia has been arrested for his alleged role in a series of public shootings on the NSW south coast.

A special strike force investigation was launched nine months ago after several public place shootings, assaults and other criminal activities.

As a result of the investigations ten people have been arrest and face a total of 49 charges.

In April officers in the ACT and NSW joined also forces to investigate links between alleged offences and ongoing criminal activity in Canberra.

On Wednesday police arrested the National president of the Nomads Outlaw Motorcycle Gang at Carran, in the ACT.

He was taken to the ACT Watch House.

Police then raided two homes in the Canberra suburbs of Kingston and Kambah, where investigators seized two motor vehicles, a firearm, cash, prohibited drugs, jewellery and various OMCG paraphernalia, including patches.

The Nomads bikie will appear at ACT Magistrates Court on Thursday where NSW Police Force detectives will apply for his extradition to face charges related to firearms and directing a criminal group.

Police allege the 34-year-old supplied firearms that were used in three public place shootings in the Batemans Bay area in December last year.

Authorities will address the media with further information on Thursday.
