Authorities seized around $2 million worth of the drug ice, which was allegedly found concealed in candles at the premises in question.
Miller, 45 was apprehended along with a 47-year-old man after police raided a Rozelle unit, a Balmain home and a business in Bankstown.
Both men are expected to be charged after being taken to Newtown Police Station for questioning.
Police are alleging the former Olympian was involved in the commercial supply of ice.
The raids were part of a joint effort involving detectives from the State Crime Command’s Drug and Firearms Squad and the NSW Crime Commission.
The taskforce was investigating the supply of illegal drugs across NSW - particularly methylamphetamine (ice).
Nine News reported that police arrested Miller after searching his Rozelle property on Tuesday morning.

Miller accused of illegal drug supply
Nine reporter Emma Partidge said police have accused the swimmer of using his transport company, Miller's Transport, to "ferry the drugs across the country".
Miller won a silver and a bronze medal for Australia at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.
He previously admitted to having a methamphetamine addiction and vowed to stay drug-free after completing six months of rehab in 2014.
Miller's ex-wife Charlotte Dawson committed suicide a day after the swimmer's 39th birthday in 2014, after which point he focused his efforts on helping others with drug addictions.
Dawson's tragic death came less than a week after an interview of Miller's that aired on Australian television, in which he spoke openly about his drug addiction and relationship with his ex-wife.
