WA police ready for massive Rebels run

The Rebels bikie gang during a national run

WA police are preparing for the annual national run of the Rebels bikie gang driving into Perth.


UP to 1000 Rebels bikies preparing to descend on Perth for their national run have been warned not to enter pubs or clubs during their time in Western Australia. ( is this Nazi Germany? Fuck me...)

WA police will launch a massive operation from Thursday as they anticipate the arrival of hundreds of Rebels members from all over Australia and beyond.

Chapters from across the country have begun congregating in preparation for the run across the Nullarbor, with the bikies expected to arrive in Perth on Monday or Tuesday next week.

Up to 1000 patched members of the gang will be met with the state's biggest police presence since the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 2011.

Gang members have been warned that they will be barred from any licensed premises under a section of the state's liquor licensing act referring to those "known to be, or associates of, a reputed thief, prostitute, supplier of unlawful drugs, or person convicted of an offence involving unlawful drugs or violence".

Detective Senior Sergeant Jeff Christmass said he was expecting no trouble from the Rebels, who are set to be led by national president Alex Vella.

"WA police have been planning for this for many months, and we don't expect there to be any trouble - but having said that motorcycle gangs are always unpredictable," Sgt Christmass said.

"We are prepared to do anything we need to do to make the community safe. From the minute they cross the WA border, we will be shadowing them."

The Rebels will be met by hundreds of officers from units including the state's armed Tactical Response Group to be managed by the gang crime squad.

They will be followed from the WA border into Perth, where they are expected to congregate at the Rebels' WA clubhouse in Osborne Park, which will be watched 24 hours a day.

Airports will also be monitored for Rebels from international chapters arriving.
