Senior Rebels bikie charged after police seize 2.3kg of methamphetamine from Golden Bay
- April 01, 2015
Gang Crime Squad officers, with the help of the police dog squad, raided the property on Friday, March 27.
The arrest and charge marks the end of an investigation that was centred on the Rockingham chapter of the outlaw motorcycle gang.
Police allege 2.3kg of methamphetamine was seized from the property.
Organised Crime Detective Senior Sergeant Darren Hart said the seizure had a wholesale value of $600,000, which translated to 23,000 user deals worth more than $1.5 million.
“This seizure will have a significant financial impact on the Rebels outlaw motorcycle gang,” he said.
Det Sen-Sgt Hart alleged this seizure was further evidence of outlaw motorcycle gangs’ involvement in high-level organised crime and their contribution to the widespread methamphetamine problem facing WA.
“It also demonstrates willingness of OMCGs to exploit the vulnerable in the community for
their own gain,” he said.
A 29-year-old Port Kennedy man, who police say is a senior Rebels member, has been charged with one count of possession of prohibited drugs with intent to sell or supply.
He will appear in Perth Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
