The 29-year-old was arrested at Coogee in the city's east and taken to Maroubra Police Station yesterday.

The ABC understands the man is Mark Buddle, the national president of the gang.

Buddle was released from jail earlier this year after serving about five months over a brawl at a pub.

Wednesday's raid was followed on Thursday by raids on Hells Angels clubhouses at Haymarket in the CBD and Annandale in the inner west.

Police say they found evidence of illegal alcohol sales at all three premises.

The occupiers of all three buildings will be issued with breaches under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act.

Commander of the Gangs Squad, Detective Superintendent Arthur Katsogiannis, says police will keep the pressure on.

"As long as some people within these gangs want to carry out criminal acts or allow their violent conflicts to be aired in public, we will be there to disrupt their day-to-day activities," he said about the raids.

Police say the raids are unrelated to a fatal shooting earlier this week.

Bassil Hijazi, 18, who was killed at Bexley on Monday night, had links to the Turrella clubhouse.
