Police say a McGraths Hill man, 22, was among five members of the Rebels outlaw motorcycle gang (OMCG) who were arrested last Wednesday over the alleged assault of two Finks OMCG members in Clarendon on June 5.

Last Wednesday police executed seven search warrants on homes in Berkshire Park, Mulgoa, Colyton, Ropes Crossing, Bidwill, McGraths Hill and Lalor Park. Five Rebels members, including the McGraths Hill man, were arrested and police seized two litres of methylamphetamine oil and a small amount of ice, steroids, ammunition, a ballistic vest and Rebels OMCG paraphernalia. All were charged with affray and participating in a criminal group. The McGraths Hill man was granted conditional bail and is due to appear at Penrith Local Court on August 17. Two members of the Finks OMCG were arrested on July 8 in South Windsor in relation to the Bligh Park incident. A number of items relating to the hotel assault, as well as OMCG paraphernalia and steroids were seized. These men, 33 and 31, were charged with affray and appeared at Windsor Local Court on Thursday.
