  • Rebels bikie gang members in WA charged with gun, drug offences


    The president and other members of the Rebels outlaw motorcycle gang's Bentley chapter in suburban Perth have been arrested and charged after a long-running drug investigation.

    Police revealed last night several locations linked to the 49-year-old chapter president had been searched and cash and drugs were seized in the raid.

    The 49-year-old faces several charges of supplying trafficable quantities of methamphetamine and one charge of conspiring to unlawfully possess 10 Glock pistols.

    His bail was refused and he will appear in the Perth Magistrate's Court today.

    Police said his partner and a female criminal associate were also arrested and face similar charges.

    "These arrests again expose the ROMCG [Rebels] as an organisation of criminals who are making a significant contribution to the meth epidemic in this state," Detective Senior Sergeant Darren Hart said.

    "It is also very concerning that this man made attempts to get his hands on a number of pistols. Fortunately in this case he was unsuccessful."

    Police said "ongoing high level trafficking" of methamphetamine by the Rebels was "further evidence of their willingness to exploit the vulnerable within our society".
