A man described as a "drug kingpin" has lashed out at Sydney Airport authorities after arriving on a flight from New Zealand, a police video shows.
The Australian man, 34, appears to resist officers at the airport as New South Wales police reportedly undertook a crackdown on organised crime. Raids are said to have taken place across Sydney last week.
The raids on Sydney properties have allegedly uncovered 1.5kg of cocaine, 1.1kg of methamphetamine, two semi-automatic weapons, ammunition, and $2.75 million in cash, among other illicit items.

According to NSW police, the man has been charged with a list of offences including supplying illegal drugs, possessing ammunition, resisting arrest, participating in organised crime groups, and aggravated firearms offences, NZME reports.
The man's older brother, 32, was also arrested by police on Thursday in Sydney's Alexandria, reports claims, charged with similar offences to his brother including supply of illegal drugs, participating in organised crime, and firearms offences.
It's unknown what the man was doing in New Zealand.
