Police have seized drugs and two sawn-off guns during a raid involving heavily armed officers.
Tactical officers attended the Southern View Drive home in West Albury about 9.30am on Friday
Police armed with assault rifles and shotguns created a perimeter around the home as a safety precaution and urged the three occupants to come out.
A megaphone was used during the incident.
A 29-year-old man surrendered a short time after police arrived, and an 18-year-old man and a woman later walked out of the home.
Detective Chief Inspector Mick Stoltenberg said drugs believed to be ice and cocaine were recovered, along with the two firearms.
The older man will be charged, police are investigating if the 18-year-old will be charged, and the woman was hospitalised due to concerns about her state.
