NSW police seize cash, drugs and rifle scope in raids on Rebels bikie-linked Tweed house
Officers from Tweed/Byron local area command’s Strike Force Walenore bikie strike team have raided two properties this week, as part of its crackdown on OMCG gangs following an escalating gang turf war.
During a search at the home of an associate of the Rebels OMCG at Commissioners Creek on Monday police located a rifle scope, a laser pointer, more than $6000 cash, and an amount of cannabis.
Police say inquiries into those items are continuing.

A search was also conducted at the home of a member of the Lone Wolf OMCG at Terranora yesterday, with a 39-year-old man issued a warning for consorting.
Tweed/Byron crime manager, Detective Inspector Brendon Cullen, said anti-bikie operations were ongoing.
“These operations are a direct consequence of the disregard that OMCG members have had for the community and we will continue to endeavour to bring their behaviour in line with community expectations,” he said.
