A man has been led handcuffed from a Sydney work site in relation to a spate of armed robberies at pizza shops across the city over a seven-week period in which a worker was shot.
Between November and January this year, five pizza shops - in Canley Vale, Fairfield East, North Strathfield, Strathfield and Wentworthville - were held up by a man with a firearm, who demanded cash after threatening staff.
A 21-year-old worker suffered permanent injuries after he was shot twice during the burglary of a fifth pizza shop in Wentworthville.
A 28-year-old from Old Guildford man was arrested in Pagewood on Wednesday morning, police said.
A firearm, bullets and clothing have since been seized after police searched three properties in Old Guildford.
The 28-year-old has been refused bail to appear in Waverley Local Court on Thursday where he faces charges of assault, weapons and traffic offences.
